The Act Laboratory

This intensive process offers a safe but challenging environment where performers can bring material at any stage of development - from a half formed idea to a sticky spot in a show thatıs already up and running - and expose it to the supportive but also critical eye of an experienced director. The rest of the group of students plays an essential role in providing an enthusiastic audience and a range of honest feedback.
