Marburg, Valencia and Padua start a new academic year
The three European seats of the Erasmus+ Scene Network Project started their acting formation workshop classes this past week.
Marburg kicked off the year this past Saturday with the start of its Winter Semester. This year sees the renewal of the entire teaching team led by four women, all of them alumni of the project in Marburg.
Valencia, the central base of the European project, transformed the beginning of its classes into a large casting where around 200 people tried out for the selection. Only 20 were chosen. Students from Poland, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, England, Syria, Cameroon, Colombia and Gambia will now be the protagonists. The classes have started as usual, led by the teacher Josep Valero.
Padua was the last to launch its new edition, with a completely renewed team comprising of actors and dancers of the theatrical company “l’Antico fa Testo”. The teachers Francesco Puccio and Claudia Lo Casto welcomed the 12 Erasmus students who will star in the theatrical productions of this year.
For the first time, thanks to the European Union’s Erasmus+ program, Escena Erasmus coordinates the Erasmus+ Scene Network project, with the universities of Marburg (Germany) and Padua (Italy), led by the General Foundation of the Universitat de València. The project strives to be a tool of research, dialogue and integration, with the added creative and educative possibilities offered by the production of a theatrical show based on the relation between European students and refugees integrated into the project.
