The masterclass brought together 6 young actors from Bulgaria, France, Greece, Hungary and Italy to work together on texts by Falk Richter: Monologues and choral forms; contemporary loneliness; roaming in the globalized world; attempt at a political theatre; life turned into a conflict zone for each and every one; the feeling of being strangers in a foreign country in which one will never live – these were the thematic associations that stood at the beginning of the work process.
Favoring transmission and inter-cultural dialogue, the Decentralized Academy contributes to the development of links between artists of the European continent, while enabling an act of transmission between young artists and great “masters” of our time.
