The New Face of Acting Teachers

In December 2012 I was selected for the post-graduate course "The New Face of Acting Teachers - Theatre Training Methods for Innovative Pedagogical Practice" which will take place in Mexico City at the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM). The course is led by Jurij Alschitz, a Russian director and one of the most renowned theatre pedagogues at this time, joined by a team of European and Mexican teachers in view of intercultural exchange. Stay tuned for my blog of the month-long session in February 2013!
The course stems from a collaboration between AKT-ZENT (research centre of the International Theatre Institute) directed by Prof. Jurij Alschitz in collaboration with Christine Schmalor, and the CUT - Centro Universitario de Teatro directed by Prof. Mario Espinosa within the framework of the World Theatre Training Library, a project that "collects, studies, documents and preserves the worldwide knowledge of theatre practice. The idea of strengthening cultural diversity is mission statement of the project."
