La MaMa Umbria - Summer, 2015

La MaMa Umbria International Announces Artists for Summer, 2015

World Class Artists Gather at Ellen Stewart’s Famous International Artist Residence

La MaMa Umbria International announced today its largest gathering of world theatre

artists who will teach workshops, lead facilitated retreats, create new works and direct

productions in the Spoleto Festival. Programs focusing on Directing, Acting, Playwriting or

Theatre-Making will come to life from mid-June to the end of August, 2015.


The 5th Master Acting Workshops

feature two members of Tadeusz Kantor’s

company, Cricot 2, sharing the performance

process of this legendary company: Teresa

Wełmińska and Andrzej Wełmiński; and

renowned acting teacher Nicholas Wolcz, who

will focus on “Mask and Identity.” The Acting

Workshops begin July 29 and finish August 7.

We will explore selected artistic

methods, characteristic means of

expression and the performance

formation processes. Participants will

create short theatre pieces and

scenes, adapting the methods

developed by the Cricot 2 Theatre,

referring in particular to the

collaborative nature of the work and its

main premise: the autonomous

theatre, in which all components of the

work are of equal importance.


La MaMa Umbria International is a non-profit cultural center and artist residence founded

in 1990 by legendary theatre pioneer, Ellen Stewart. Dedicated to artistic experimentation,

research, and learning, La MaMa Umbria is a place where artists from around the world meet to

create, and to share work and ideas. Housed in a 700 year old monastery just outside Spoleto,

Italy, the center is less than two hours from Rome.

In addition to the Symposium, Retreat and Workshops, each summer La MaMa Umbria

hosts Residencies and preparation of performances at the La MaMa Spoleto Open Festival,

which is the official Fringe Festival of the Spoleto Festival of Two Worlds.
