The Bavarian Academy of Dramatic Arts has been an enduring element of the cultural life in Regensburg for years, and in that time it has earned itself a permanent place in the affections of the people of the city. In its function as a place of education, it informs, influences and shapes the cultural future of Regenburg with regard to the dramatic arts in an entirely unique fashion. Since its very beginnings in 2001, when the Acting school was founded in Regensburg as a specialized vocational school and in turn transformed with bewildering speed into the Bavarian Academy of Dramatic Arts, the academy has earned an enviable reputation. In this establishment, young people receive substantive, comprehensive training in the study areas of Acting, Stage Direction and Theater Education. Speaking from my position as a cultural policy advisor, what pleases me particularly about the Bavarian Academy of Dramatic Arts is that it brings young artists to Regensburg – and this in turn generates enormous added value for the city and urban community. Because it is the young above all who see the city with fresh eyes and accordingly respond to it in quite unconventional ways, thus enriching the cultural life in Regensburg incalculably.
It is also immensely important for the City of Regensburg that the Bavarian Academy of Dramatic Arts offers classes and seminars that are open to all residents of the city. The classes offered by the Bavarian Academy of Dramatic Arts sparkle in their diversity: Besides classes and workshops such as Improvization, Body Language or Articulation for adults, for example, there are also wonderful theater classes for children and adolescents.
We are delighted to be able to support the Bavarian Academy of Dramatic Arts in Regensburg. We watch the steady growth of the Academy with great admiration, and we trust that the Executive Team as well as all the instructors and students, and the members of the ensemble will continue to showcase their creative talents in productions to great public acclaim for many years to come.
