The workshops that we usually do in August will be suspended also this year (2021). The social restriction rules due to Covid in force in Italy do not allow us to offer students the essence, intensity and integrity of our educational and poetic proposal. Distance of at least 1 meter indoors for training activities is mandatory. Physical contact is not allowed, it is necessary to wear a mask when moving inside and sanitize the materials and tools every time they are used.
We will resume pedagogical activities in January 2022 with the three-month program.

The three-month program will resume in 2022.
Dates are from January 4th to March 27th.
APPLICATIONS ARE OPEN

The mask is
the face you wear,  
the actor’s body,
the choral body,
the writing of the show.
The show itself
is a mask.

THE  THREE MONTH PROGRAM

The Mask is the guiding theme throughout the program.

We seek to understand the Mask in its deeper significance as a structure through which the invisible comes to life in a tangible form.

The Mask is the most important tool within the foundation of theatrical expression at all levels: directing, acting, writing, teaching, and creating original pieces.

 

Its profound significance, its functions, its uses, and its constant demand for authenticity require a rigorous technical practice and, simultaneously, a generous openness toward play
