Physical training – Actor’s dramaturgy – Bharata Natyam – Stilts

Performances – Demonstrations – Open rehearsals


23-29 August 2018, Vlaha, Cluj county


Led by: the company of Teatro tascabile di Bergamo (TTB)



Shoshin International Theatre Residencies awaits those interested with another special and unique workshop. This year's summer camp, which is becoming a tradition, is led by a whole company, as the guest of Shoshin is the Teatro tascabile di Bergamo (Italy). Accordingly, the workshop itself is much more stratified and richer: in addition to the workshops, participants get the chance to see performances from the repertoire of the company and as a unique opportunity they can get an insight into the rehearsals of TTB's new production.


The components of the workshop:

- common module: physical training (actor’s acrobatics and other exercises) and actor’s dramaturgy

- optional modules (you can choose one of the two): Indian classical dance (Bharata Natyam) or stilts-course
