LASALLE College of the Arts


Recommended Posts


At LASALLE, “It” is not a characteristic that can be defined by a single noun or summarised within a sentence. Instead, “It” is a culmination of diversity, progressiveness, inspirations, dreams, blood, sweat, and tears, all of which have helped mold this institution into one of the leading contemporary arts practitioners today.

With a wide range of programs in a world-class campus, you can expect an unparalleled arts education designed to nurture your passion for the arts and push the boundaries of creative excellence.

The training of an actor is a rigorous, multi-faceted discipline that enriches a student’s imagination, kinesthetic awareness, and emotional sensitivity. The BA(Hons) Acting is a performance-based program offering quality training in all essential elements: acting, voice, and movement techniques, through the synthesis of theory and practice. LASALLE aims to graduate thinking, expressive, informed, and creative actors with the ability to work across genres, media, and performance cultures. Through classes, projects, workshops, and productions, the program develops your ability to work in an ensemble environment and awareness of your imaginative resources. The program prepares actors for careers on stage and screen. You gain experience through live performances and digitally recorded performance opportunities using professional quality facilities and equipment in the College’s three theatre venues, the film studio, and recording studio. The program often collaborates with other disciplines within LASALLE, including professional partners, particularly in the development of new theatre works. These collaborations offer students a broader perspective on artistic practices across other forms and in the industry. You will participate in a variety of fully-mounted productions directed by local and international professionals in a range of classic and contemporary works that are innovative, authentic, and thought-provoking. Level 1 considers the relationship between body, voice, and mind, and develops physical presence. The unique feature of Level 1 is intensive stylistic workshops in traditional Asian performance forms. Level 2 reinforces the interdependence of the elements that make up the actor’s processes. You are guided on a personal work method, through continuous engagement with productions. Level 3 operates as a theatre company with ensemble members, comprising final year students experiencing a range of roles, styles, genres, and disciplines. Your studies integrate practice with theory in a research topic of your choice, which can incorporate practice-based creation and investigation. You refine your art form with a strong focus on your strengths. LASALLE Short Courses are designed for learners of all ages, from future students to working professionals to silver citizens. They are designed to allow you to explore and be inspired.
