Directors and actors – targeted for people of the theatre

The education is a 2-year Gestalt Training Program in Creative Expressiveness and Personal Leadership for Actors and Instructors of Theatre. Here we work to use Gestalt methodology to develop the artistic expression. Your presence here and now, and your being there and your contact in your appearance on the stage are the core concepts. This is done through individual work and in groups. The program is an exciting collaboration for people of the theatre across Scandinavia.

Management with theatre knowledge

The program is headed by John Ewans Porting. John is the head of GIS-International. The program is developed in a previous collaboration with further education at the Finnish Theatre Academy in Helsinki, Finland and supported by the Nordic Council.

Meet yourself on your own stage

The theatre program is a very active and vibrant forum, because all participants can bring their own personal life experience. It creates a special intensive atmosphere in the study group. And the cross-Scandinavian composition allows participants to expand their professional networks.

It was Laura and Frederick Perls, who, from the 1940s onwards, developed what was to become Gestalt methodology.
