Theater in a place that doesn’t exist

Acting workshop in Calabria

October 4 – 12, 2023

theater: playstation starts a new workshop!
And in a very special place: in Calabria, in the village of Camini, where a unique project with refugees was created.

My heart is beating with joy, with impatience, with excitement. All alone, me and my Fiat Millecento, and the whole south in front of me. The adventure begins.


Playing theatre, experiencing culture and getting to know a unique project with refugees.

For everyone interested in theater and acting.

A week full of drama, culture, inspiration and emotion.
Immerse yourself for a week in a place that had almost disappeared and then became a place where refugees from all over the world and locals build a new togetherness.

Seven workshop days await you with:

  • improvisation, voice and body in space, perception exercises, work on scenes/ monologues;
  • Techniques from contemporary performance and documentary theatre, working with masks, developing your own texts and scenes, staging process.
  • Inspiring encounters with Calabrian theater and film artists and the people of Camini; joint excursions to the sea and to beautiful towns and villages.

The workshop is aimed at people of all ages who are interested in theater and acting. Theater professionals are also welcome.
