The Summer Physical Theatre Intensive at the Accademia dell’Arte offers students and artists opportunities to spend one month inside a conservatory training program while earning 6 U.S. credits. 

The focus of the summer courses is on self-generated work and devising from various perspectives. The course offerings vary every summer and give artists tools from diverse fields of physical theatre in order to explore different approaches to storytelling and devised performance.

In the spirit of inter-pedagogical exchange, participants will also have the chance to engage in discussions with master teachers from both the dance and physical theatre tracks regarding their philosophies on performance making and choreography.
