History and tradition breathe alive

Seoul Institute of the Arts’ Theatre Program has the longest history and the greatest tradition in Korea and is ceaselessly growing at the core of Korea’s contemporary theater. Believing that theater education is achieved on stage, not in the classroom, we promote both education and creation for students to refine their skills based on tradition and modernity, arts and science, and spirit and techniques. As we added the Acting Program in 2007, the Theater Program has been focusing on production and each student produces their creative work. They acquire professional training at Dongnang Center in Namsan and at the Ansan Campus during vacations, and participate in creative activities at Dongnang Production Company after graduation to grow into performing artists who present Korea to the world.
