Oskarshamn, Sweden Teen (USA Applicants)

Students entering high school-exiting freshman year of college (and/or 19 years of age).

July 9th-July 28th, 2018 (with travel dates on either side.)

The workshop begins on Monday, July 9th, 2018 The students traveling from the U.S. will  depart on Saturday, July 7th, 2018 and return on Tuesday, July 31st, 2018

Students from around the world join a professional staff from around the world and share their collective stories from all walks of life.  In doing so, one, solid, unified piece of theatre is born.  In order to make this happen, we need creative people of all types.  This experience is about the creative process, and while the performance is an enormous part of our workshop, the focus is on the weeks of creation. The production is always multilingual, but the daily workshop is conducted in English. This cultural exchange is like no other!

July 9th-July 28th, 2018 (with travel dates on either side.)

Collaborate, conceive, write, compose, choreograph, design and perform an original piece of theatre with music while working with fellow students and professional artists from around the world. Up to 10 American students will join students from Sweden, Finland and beyond to create an International Theatrical Masterpiece! Also, explore Sweden and its culture while submersed in a welcoming, beautiful, quaint Baltic sea-side community.

The workshop begins on Monday, July 9th, 2018 The students traveling from the U.S. will  depart on Saturday, July 7th, 2018 and return on Tuesday, July 31st, 2018
