Who may be interested?

Module 1 - "Design of performance, creation of props and costumes from cardboard and paper" 

We invite to participation beginning artists, designers, architects, photographers, students of pedagogical colleges and everyone who is interested in making art. Take part in our intensive practical course, which will teach you the basics of cardboard modeling and working with the audience within performances. The course is optimal as practice internship for students.

Module 2 - "Communication, performance with elements of management"

Suitable for actors, performers, directors, clowns as well as event managers/producers who would like not only to get new interesting experience of creating performances from the very beginning and improvising in the team, but also take part in the organizational processes. Organizers who would like to develop their skills of interaction with the audience in the process of street and spectacular performance are welcome to apply. Your training in performance and management is considered but not critical in our selection. 

This is an opportunity to take part in creating real projects, full of diverse and often unexpected tasks. The level of participation solely depends on your desires, abilities and diligence. For experienced professionals the internship can become a base for experiments, public realization of creative ideas, and research of new directions. For students and beginners the internship can become an opportunity to take the first steps in the creative field, and also a place where you will be evaluated by your results, not diploma and portfolio.
