The European Theatre Academy is a four-day seminar of master classes and workshops, offering broad and in-depth knowledge of curating and managing international theatre collaborations. It is aimed at professionals at the beginning of their careers with potential and ambition to grow internationally. This unique programme takes place every year during the Festival d’Avignon in France. 

For this fifth edition, participants will benefit from expert lectures on funding and support, production and curating, touring and accessing foreign theatre markets. Several group work sessions with selected mentors will enable the participants to work on their own projects and delve into practical issues and considerations.

Led by distinguished professionals of the international theatre scene, the Academy is a working space of reflection, promotion of good practices and international networking.
