of inspiration, innovation, motivation and creativity...
I consider myself very lucky to find the place like IUGTE and have 
opportunity to participate in their events"

"Definitely is a positive outcome because besides enjoying and having so much of good time, I’ve learn so much from other practitioners also the director, Sergei at the way he conducted his workshop. There’s respect among each other and is worth the time and money for this workshop"

"I'm grateful for getting the chance to work on simple and concrete tasks, and rediscover them for myself. I found new perspectives on, and within, a lot of the exercises we did throughout the days...What I appreciated the most was the opportunity to meet colleagues from so many different backgrounds and countries. This was beyond any expectation that I had in advance. It was a pleasure to feel how the group managed to get into a very relaxed and developing work dynamic"
Tanja Andreeva, Norway

"The truly international nature of the convergence, brought together people from many parts of the globe, united by the common passions shared, cultures and ideas were shared freely, collaborative possibilities discussed and many jolly conversations had over tasty Italian meals. The choice of venue was splendid. The monastery buildings, the surrounding grounds, and the sea, was the perfect setting for a quiet retreat to relax the mind and let the body create"
Mrinalini Sekar, India

"This workshop will not only teach you how to perform, but also teach you how to put yourself (as a performer) or your peers (as a director) into a state of total creativity where every activity gives rise to a performance in itself...Take part in the magic of theatre..."

"This lab truly was a break through experience for me because it showed me the importance of our body not just as a vessel for movement but it showed that through gesture one can use that to invoke emotion thus, through using this in practice and in the rehearsal room one can really add depth to characters".
