Luxembourg European Annual Theatre Summer School

Intensive Workshops

I love acting. It is so much more real than life.

Oscar Wilde

The Workshops

Each of the 2-day Intensive Workshops will deal exclusively with the subject offered allowing students to concentrate on that subject and immerse themselves in the material without the interactions and sharing of work associated with the Summer School. Generally, the workshops do not require previous knowledge or experience.

The three workshops will be held one after the other, permitting students to attend one, two or all three workshops. The timetable will follow that of the Summer School so that breaks and meal times coincide. Students can also stay at Clairefontaine for the duration of the workshops in which they are participating. Prospective students should note that they may participate in the Summer School or in the Intensive Workshops but not both. Combining the two is not possible.

Because details are not yet finalised, students who might be interested in doing all three workshops can apply for either the summer school or the workshops and then decide on one or the other at a later stage.

The Timetable

Each Workshop has 12 hours 45 minutes of class, broken down as follows:

  • Day 1 (5 hours) starts at 2 pm and continues until 9.15 pm with breaks for tea/coffee and supper.
  • Day 2 (7 hours 45 minutes) starts at 9.30 am and continues until 9.15 pm with breaks for tea/coffee, lunch and supper. Students are encouraged to attend the summer school warm-up at 9.00 am.
  • 2 nights’ accommodation with breakfast are included as well as lunch on Day 1.

Registration and room occupation will be from 11 am until 1 pm on the starting day (or by prior arrangement with the course administrator).

Students doing all three workshops will have the option to stay for the entire week, participating in the opening and closing forums, the summer school tasters and the picnic.
