The institute for performing arts includes all courses and studios that are closely connected with the performing arts: like the departments of opera, Figurentheater (puppetry and animated forms), acting and performance.

Students of the three courses acting, opera and figurentheater use the Wilhelma Theater as a chance for public performances. The Wilhelma theater is part of the university, but enjoys artistic autonomy. We encourage and promote collaborative cross-faculty projects.

For more information about the range of courses please refer to the individual courses sites.
