Theatre Immersion Project

A major initiative of The Global Theatre Project is the Theatre Immersion Project.   We have piloted this project with the University of Texas in summer of 2011 and have launched a new relationship with the University of New Haven which will be open to any student application for this coming summer, 2012. (for more information please click here or contact us at info@theglobaltheatreproject.org)

These steps will lead to opening ALL of our international projects to the participation of university students for credit toward their degree, offering them one of the most unique international educational opportunities for serious students of theatre.  Students of Theatre Immersion Project will enter into a world specifically designed to integrate them creatively into the communities in which they are working and living with the underlying mission of awakening them to their global citizenship.  With six years of practical experience in the area of working with US as well as international students in Florence, Italy, The Global Theatre Project is positioned to offer a truly authentic experience of student engagement abroad at a deep and productive level.  Students will work on the main project or initiative of The Global Theatre Project as well as on the Creative Campus Global Initiative during their time with us.

Theatre Immersion Project will launch in  Florence Italy where we have long established creative and institutional relationships.   When fully running the Theatre Immersion Project will offer three projects per year which coincide with US university semesters.  Once the format and structure for the Theatre Immersion Project is in place, The Global Theatre Project will take this replicable model to other locations throughout the world. 

With a focus on global awareness and art-for-social-good on an international scale, students of Theatre Immersion Project will be on the cutting edge exploring theatre’s relevance for global relationships and community service.   Both abroad and at home.

“We have become global citizens. We know we have been given a unique opportunity not offered to other students who study in Florence. We have been scared at times to be pushed beyond our comfort zone, but we have learned how courageous we can be and how much we can do and become. This is a life-changing experience and I am deeply grateful for it.”
