ACTING

June 19-29, 2019
TUSCANY, ITALY

During the10 day course you will participate in a unique program designed for actors and other theatre performers who want to further explore the connection between music and performance, and who are interested in collaborating with classical musicians in order to explore a more personal, deeper and more truthful connection between spoken word, movement and music.

We offer a great opportunity to investigate the musicality of the text just as well as the hidden narratives of a musical piece and examine how the two art forms can melt into one fascinating theatrical expression on stage.

The course will be lead by Adam Boncz and Esztella Levko and will have a special masterclass with Chulpan Khamatova.

During 10 days of our intensive course
