Training weekends

One- and two-day bilingual theatre training workshops are now being led by Theatraverse’s artistic team.

The aim of these workshops is to provide an initiation to (or development of) bilingual theatre practise.  The sessions include vocal, physical and stage warm-ups, bilingual improvisations, play-led technical work and some work on bilingual texts.

One of the main principals of our workshops is to lead them in both French and English, thanks to the presence of two leaders, who adapt their interventions to suit the group in a challenging yet accessible way. Everyone is welcome, from beginners to experienced linguists and practitioners. 

We ask participants to play an active role in discussion while we work : offering constructive feedback to others helps to develop our own skills and creates a convivial and positive working atmosphere.

Sessions for adults this year will be held on Sundays, from 10am to 5pm, at the Espace Vinci in Courbevoie :

  • 14 October 2018
  • 25 November 2018
  • 20 January 2019
  • 24 February 2019
  • 7 April 2019
  • 19 May 2019

50 euros per sessions or 275 euros for all six, plus 10 euros annual registration with the company.
