Made in Cardboardia (RU) and Motus Terrae Theatre Company (GR) are planning to launch an intensiveworkshop on the development of Street Performances. Therefore we would like to invite young actors and professionals to participate in one-week workshops on the following topics:

In seven days we will develop an impressive Street Performance, which will be presented on the Cosmonautics Day on the 12th of April at Moskvich Cultural Center. During this time the costume workshop's participants will focus on costume design and will get the basics of
theater costumes development, decoration and theatrical props creation. Participants of the "stilts" section will receive training on the development of body mobility and sense of rhythm, new acrobatic techniques and research newways of interacting with the audience.
By the end of the lab, all participants will receive the following:
- New skills and practice in a real project;
- Materials for the portfolio;
- Certificate acknowledging participation in the Street Performance Lab;
- Opportunity to cooperate with Cardboardia in future.
Courses within the Lab will be taught by Spyros Andreopoulos (Actor and Director of Motus Terrae Theatre Company) and Olesya Kandalintseva (artist, designer, curator of internship program at "Made in Cardboardia").
Workshop participation is free, yet the number of places is limited. The study groups will be determinedaccording to the interviews' results.
