The ATELIER Mask Movement Theatre is a international school center for theatre research and creation, conceived and directed by Matteo Destro based in San Miniato, Italy.
 
The objective of the Atelier team is to offer a space of creative inquiry for artists interested in expanding their creative tools as actor, director, playwright or wishing to further their knowledge of Mask and Physical, Movement Based Theatre. 

The three-month program scheduled for January-March 2021 has been canceled due to the new Covid 19 related health security protocols in force temporarily in Italy.

Also the programming of training activities for the year 2021 are suspended as long as the covid emergency situation doesn't improve.

As soon as the situation permits it, we will publish the new course dates.

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.

TEAM

APPLICATION

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
