You will also gain access to stateof-the-art theatre facilities, such as our purpose-built Blackbox Theatre at The Republic Cultural Centre, to polish your technical expertise in theatre and live entertainment.

When you graduate, you will be equipped to embark on a rewarding career in the arts and theatre scene, locally and internationally.
In this industry, we are expected to be creative while working with limited resources and constraints. In DATM, we learn to think outside the box and work realistically within boundaries. We are given a lot of exploratory space to experiment and having been able to work with people of different roles opens my mind. Our lecturers constantly share with us valuable industry experiences, and emphasise on the importance of staying curious.
