Registrations have started!

The Fabrica Athens Multi-Active Art Group introduces for the first year a complete Theatrical Training Program for Actors and Performers.

Content and objectives of the program

The “Theatrical Research and Training Program” of Fabrica Lab was formed after years of fermentation by Fabrica Athens with:

1. The research of modern and traditional theatrical methods, performing arts and practices

2. The training of young performers and theatrical ensembles

3. The use of theater as a social and anthropological tool, as well as as a tool of non-formal education (social theater, theater in formal and nonformal education).

The aim of the program is the training of “Dimensional Performers”.

The “Dimensional Actor”, is the one who:

-This- manages his art

-He is creative: Works creatively and with the best performance within a team, but also alone.

-Can and operates at high endurance limits, like an athlete.

-It has a multidimensional view of art and can be maneuvered in a variety of interpretive ways.

By attending a set of courses the participants:

-Know the tools they have as a performer through methods and techniques of physical theater, as well as other practices

-Learn how to research in the artistic and educational process.

-They receive a comprehensive, practical training and a variety of stimuli on the theater, where everyone finds their specialization in the performing arts

-They create their personal method of theatrical practice

-Trained to be independent creators, performers and trainers.

They produce personal and group documentary material (short performances, events, act, etc.), which they can use at any time.

-They make their personal performance (solo performance) from scratch, which they have forever in their suitcase, so that they can be educated and educated by it.

The central pillar of the program is the course “Theater of Research“, the theatrical path introduced by the main inspirer of the program, Fanis Katechos. The “Research Theater” will include classes in other theatrical methods, performing arts and practices, such as Yoga, Qi-Gong-ShenDao, Acrobatic Dance and the Suzuki Method for Actors.

In addition, program participants will have the opportunity to attend with priority a series of seminars, programs and trainings that will be conducted by the Fabrica Athens team. Watching them will work positively in the most immediate and comprehensive training of the participants on how a professional theatrical team that lasts over time works and on the alternative ways of action of a performer-artist. Specifically:

-Training Training Course: Theater of Research

– Stilt training

– Youth Exchange Programs – Erasmus +

-Theatrical Youth Exchange Programs

-Seminars (Workshop) of various subjects

Program cycles:

The “Theatrical Research and Education Program” is divided into three annual cycles, of which:

-The 1st cycle is independent and the participants can only watch it.

-The 2nd cycle presupposes the monitoring of the 1st.

-The 3rd cycle is optional and presupposes the attendance of the previous two years.
