Inteatro Festival Academy 


IFA - Inteatro Festival Academy is the programme of research and professional training, promoted and founded in 2006 by Inteatro, that gives the opportunity to young performers, coming from all over the world, to work with estabilished artists of the international theatre and dance scene.

In its sixth edition, IFA proposes a new formula: three different workshops led by three artists who will propose their own working methods and scenic languages, helping the participants developing their own artistic trajectories. At the end of each workshop, the artist/mentor will select a maximum of two projects that will be presented in an Open Lab section within the International Inteatro Festival of Polverigi (June 28th > July 2nd ). The costs of the presentation will be at the expenses of the organization.


The three workshops will be led by Geraldine Pilgrim (from April 18th to May 1st), Gustavo Frigerio (from May 16th to 29th), Cláudia Dias (from May 31th to June 13th).

Each workshop has 12 vacancies for young artists/performers aged between 18 and 32 years, of different nationalities, who want to gain experience in research and training for the development of their practice. It is possible to apply for one or more workshops.


To participate in the workshop(s), we require a fee to cover the costs of the attendance, lodging, work and study spaces.


Applications must be arrived to Inteatro offices by March 4th  2011 (date as postmark is not valid) <>  or Inteatro - Via Marconi 77 - 60020 Polverigi An – Italy


Applications must include: letter of application with a brief argument about the artist/mentor(s) you want to work with; curriculum vitae, including personal details (name, surname, address, telephone, email); a research project proposal that the candidate would like to develop during the residency. It is possible to add video materials, texts, and photos of previous works that may be useful in understanding the candidate’s training and creative experience. Application can be submitted in Italian, English or French. The received applications will not be returned.


The artistic committee will make a first selection. Selected applicants will then be invited to audition on March 19th. Auditions should be in the form of a performed live work (max 10 minutes) and will take place in Polverigi. The jury reserves the right not to comment on its decision.
