For More Information and Application Form: http://lamama.org/umbria_
Intensive residential retreat for young theatre and dance creators (under 35 years old), designed to give time and support to projects that are still in their initial phase of conception and development.
Next Generation is a special program open to individual artists, companies and informal groups during which the artists will have the opportunity to begin experimenting with ideas for new performances (theatre, dance, performance, etc.). The artists will have the opportunity to work individually or in groups on their own projects, while immersed in the natural inspiring environment of La MaMa Umbria. An international group of La MaMa artists and producers will be invited to follow the retreat as mentors, offering a series of daily workshops and activities aimed at stimulating the creative process, and encouraging the exchange and dialogue among the various participants. Periodically the artists will be asked to share their process with other participants and to provide constructive feedback. At the conclusion of the retreat, the artists will showcase their work for an invited public composed mainly of artists, theatre and dance presenters.
