Call for applications for 6 workshops at the 41st International Theatre Festival  in Venice (10th > 16th October 2011)

Deadline: 2 July

The 41st International Theatre Festival, conceived as a festival-laboratory will be held in Venice from October 10 through 16.The newly-appointed Catalan director Àlex Rigola has imagined the festival as an “agora of theatre”, inviting the leading personalities on the international scene – directors, choreographers, artists, architects and set designers, experts in video-writing and lighting creators – to make Venice and the Biennale not only a stage for the presentation of performances, but also and above all a place for meeting, learning, practical training and for debate on the dramatic arts at the international level, involving audiences and professionals from the world over for a deeper reflection on what it means to do theatre today. Workshops, some of which will produce a public result, lectures, meetings and round-table discussions – with an average of 5 events per day for a total of over 40 appointments – will be included in the schedule of performances and become an essential part of the Festival.
