International Programme

UK Research Expedition for Principal Ensemble

MISF is currently raising funds for a research expedition to the United Kingdom in Summer 2016. The expedition will be based in Cambridge, where students will have the opportunity to attend the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival, held in the University gardens. Students will spend 2 to 3 days in London, where they will attend lectures and workshops at The National Theatre and the Globe Theatre, take a special tour of Shakespeare's London, and attend a number of productions in London's famous West End. But no research trip would be complete without a tour of Shakespeare's home in Stratford-Upon-Avon! Students will have the opportunity to visit Shakespeare's birthplace, visit the Trinity Church in Stratford where he is laid to rest, and perhaps even catch a performance in the town's renowned Stratford Festival.

 

If time and funds permit, students may also travel to Scotland to participate in the world-famous Edinburgh Festival, where theatre community annually descends to showcase works and ideas from the tried and true to the cutting edge of new.

International Exchange

 

It is our privilege to introduce Andreas Sturm for a few minutes of valuable insight to William Shakespeare’s influence in Germany –

further supporting our claim that

Shakespeare’s text is a universal looking-glass of the human condition:

relevant, alive, and poignant literally around the globe.  

MISF is establishing international exchange programmes in several countries to provide students from all over the world with the opportunity to study with performers and academics from a wide range of cultures and backgrounds.
