"I'm so hungry to continue. This course makes you ravenous to learn. So many lightbulbs have gone off. I feel my presence growing, honestly I'm so full and hungry at the same time. 
I'm amazed every day!"

This course is for actors and dancers who wish to create their own work and are able to work in a professional and disciplined environment, are willing to push themselves and have open hearts. The course is  packed with a variety of movement and physical theatre-based disciplines to expand the 'creator-performer''s  repertoire. There will be a rigorous selection process with two rounds of application to ensure that the international group that journey's together for four months, is of the skill and mindset to excel. 

We have a playful approach to taking our work and learning seriously. We also expect commitment, discipline, professionalism and most of all willingness to be challenged to open new frameworks of thinking, doing and creating. This course is as much about how performers live and work with others, as it is about building skill and techniques.

Please read the detailed programme overview from last year's course below. The updated version with exciting new elements and teachers, will be out soon. In the meantime, please send any questions to

We look forward to meeting you. Big courageous and warm hugs to all you brave artists, choosing this path... xx
