Learning platform for Russian-speaking theatre professionals

The Online Theatre Academy is the newest offering from the World Theatre Training Institute AKT-ZENT/ITI to the international theatre community. Rapid cultural development in regards to our digitally connected globalised world has led to a call for change in the understanding of theatre learning and teaching. Going online - is just a format. We all see how human nature is changing and demanding different training. The stage remains at the centre of our attention. In addition, new media possibilities naturally give birth to new forms of artistic expression. The Online Theatre Academy opens up the potential of endless creativity of the artist and mediates with new educational methods the ability for self-education leading to the artist's self-creation.
