The program offers:
Workshop with Nadia Lauro – "Ideal device of the gaze"

+ This workshop aims to start with a current project and to translate its  « motor » into an ideal device of vision.
It includes developing an ideal public device of the gaze allowing to experiment work through a spatial perspective scenario, and thus raising more questions.
This workshop takes places within the frame of the exerce master program, as a dedicated time to dramaturgical tools. After exploring what a specific context (the theater stage, the white cube, a landscape, a frame…) contains,  by its very nature, possibilities in terms of dramaturgical composition are examined. Nadia Lauro proceeds to suggest a reversal of terms: Starting from the project to understand space, the possible or ideal public address scheme.
+ Educational costs for 3 weeks

+ Costs of the flight / accommodation and per diem / tickets for mandatory shows or visits


Application requirements:
