ETC European Theatre Academy Avignon
ETC European Theatre Academy, 5th – 9th July 2016, Festival d’Avignon
International artistic collaboration and theatre management
Master classes and workshops for theatre directors, managers and administrators, touring and theatre production managers
The ETC European Theatre Academy equips young theatre makers from both public theatre institutions and the independent performing arts sector with know-how and skills to internationalize their work environment, professionalize their international competences, and position their work in the international performing arts scene in Europe and beyond. The focus of the academy is to provide an overview on existing and proved cooperation forms and opportunities for international collaboration, considering both artistic and practical financial and legal aspects in the European context, embracing questions of funding and support, as well as language and translation.
Together with leading personalities and institutions in Europe, the Academy will offer emerging theatre directors and producers an important moment of reflection and exchange and a platform for professional networking. Participants of the European Theatre Academy are asked to bring concrete collaboration proposals and international project ideas that will be discussed and further developed as part of the master classes. International artists present at the Festival d’Avignon will meet with participants of the European Theatre Academy, sharing their work experience and give valuable insights.
