The Ecole des Maîtres is an advanced theatre workshop for young actors. Created by Franco Quadri in 1990, and now in its 24th year, it won the 2007 Venice Biennale Golden Lion award.
The partnership between the European countries participating in the Ecole project is to be extended this year to include Slovenia, which will join the five partner countries - Belgium, Croatia, France, Italy, and Portugal. The Ecole des Maîtres training course provides a unique opportunity for actors to work alongside and learn from some of the most renowned directors on the international scene. It is open to young actors who have completed their training in European theatre schools and academies of dramatic art and who are already professionally active. The aim of the programme, which is purposely designed to encourage the comparison and exchange of expertise regarding the methods and practices of theatrical production, is to foster a relationship between the participating actors through shared work experience and exposure to different texts and different spoken and artistic languages during the course of a series of itinerant workshops.
Leading the Ecole des Maîtres this year will be the Croatian director Ivica Buljan
, a homo theatralis who reflects himself in different European cultures, from his own Mediterranean to the Central European Slovenian; the French culture that he chose by education, and the German culture.
The workshop will run from 16 August to 20 October 2015, with the first stage (16 to 27 August) being held in Udine, Italy, and the second (29 August to 8 September) in Zagreb, Croatia.
The outcome of the workshops will be presented to the public during an open lesson in Udine on 27 August and in five final public performances in the participating countries, scheduled as follows: 9 September in Zagreb, 10 September in Ljubljana, 13 September in Rome, 17 October in Coimbra, and 20 October in Belgium.
Twenty actors will be selected to participate in this 24th edition of Ecole des Maîtres.
