Drawing on the experiences of the RESTORE project training, and on the strength of many years of experience in the field of training as well as the construction of networks of Social and Community Theatre Operators by Oltre le Parole onlus, the “Academy” project was born.

A week in June (to begin with!) in Umbria, in a splendid location immersed in nature, where Social and Community Theatre Operators will be able to have moments of training, project exchanges, didactic and professional comparisons, all under the banner of the “OTS® method” but with the intention of contaminating each other and producing new projects in the local, national and international spheres: from small local realities to new European projects, passing through convivial moments and reflection.

The project is the result of the combination of ideas and experiences of Andrea Lombardi, director and trainer from Umbria, Massimo Bonechi, director and trainer from Tuscany, and Pascal La Delfa, artistic director of Oltre le Parole onlus.

The Academy will have two parallel and partly converging paths: the advanced training area (dedicated to those who have attended OTS courses or masters specialized in social and community theatre in the past), and the part dedicated to those who want to approach the OTS® method for the first time and without any particular experience (teachers, psychologists, actors, directors, social workers, educators, etc.). Hospitality will be included in the course, as well as opportunities for professional growth and conviviality.

Soon all the information will be available on the website www.teatrocivile.it  (just renewed!).
