Online Courses for actors, directors and trainers

It was the pandemic who was forcing all of us to think in new ways. We could experience new formats of learning and the beauty of meeting colleagues from all over the world.

We learned to easily integrate learning into our daily professional life and explored new areas for your own theatre practice. While we’re getting back on stage, we want to keep offering seminars in an online format.
