The team

THEATRE AS A SCHOOL FOR LIFE

Our objective is for students to leave our programme with the creative tools they will need as actors in the real world. Our investigative teaching approach is supported by our team of international artists, whose common goal is to help students find their unique strengths, encourage them to push boundaries and to discover who they are as an artist. VETA provides a challenging and supportive environment, allowing students to explore and hone their instincts, as solo artists and as members of an ensemble.
