The three performance opportunities (live radio broadcast, intimate performance, and final presentation) will be presented within the festival.
Structure First phase of the summer school: Following the applicant selection process, the participants will pick, along with the teachers, the scenes they would like to work on. Participants will dive into the chosen repertoire and read the provided literature through self-study. Final phase of the summer school: The first day consists of working on interpretation and physical acting. The second day focuses on musical and body work. The subsequent five-day intensive combines physical training, scene study, rehearsing, and performing.
