XIII International Theatre Summer Academy, Italy
7 – 20 August 2023
Located in the Modena Apennines Regional Park, at the foot of Monte Cimone
The World Theatre Training Institute resumes the long tradition of the International Theatre Summer Academy and welcomes all colleagues to work with us on the common theme:
In a joint training, both groups will engage in artistic exchange on the theme of dialogue. For the actors, the exercises will serve as a basis for their practical research. The directors and educators experience the “training as a method” and will be guided to develop dialogue trainings themselves in the course of the academy.
The International Theatre Summer Academy is hosted by the Čajka Teatro d’Avanguardia Popolare, which is holding Teatri del Cimone, Festival di Teatro Contemporaneo in Montecreto and surrounding villages at the same time. We are looking forward to the evenings together with the invited theatre artists.
Language of tuition: English / Italian, on stage: mother tongue
Working hours: all day. Training, lectures, individual rehearsals, work presentations.
Montecreto is a small mountain village with natural charm known for its unique chestnut forest, which creates an atmosphere of great serenity and peace.
We will work in the small theatre, which was re-activated by artists of the Čajka Teatro during the last years. Mostly, we will use various outdoor spaces.
Next to the theatre space is a very simple guesthouse / foresteria with large shared rooms at our disposal. At the reasonable price of 25€ per night.
Cooking can be done in a large professionally equipped kitchen.
If you don’t want to stay at the Foresteria, you should look for an apartment as early as possible, since Montecreto is a popular summer holiday resort. We will connect interested participants as needed.
