About the Archa Theatre Summer School

The Archa Theatre International Summer School is a platform for the development of practical skills and effective methods of cooperation in the creation of contemporary theatre.

Archa Theatre’s program is increasingly focused on theatre that draws from real sources. Documentary theatre, collective creation or devised theatre are terms that describe theatre performances that immediately focus on social problems and reflect current social and political issues. The artistic rendering of everyday reality leads not only to the exploration of thematic levels, but also specific artistic approaches. A new theatre language is born, one different from that of traditional theatre productions.

On the basis of many years of experience with documentary theatre projects and thanks to the interest of the artists who focus or want to focus on this kind of work, the Archa Theatre has decided to open an international summer school devoted to the methods and techniques of documentary theatre and theatre creation in the social context generally.

Theatrical creation has focused on topical social and political issues. The summer school promises students to get acquainted with theatre in social context with the help of Archa Theatre’s artistic vision and advanced theatrical tools. Working language of the school is English.
