Both courses are open to anyone interested in theater-making.  For newbies/ beginners, or even pros, with or without background.

The courses are new explorations in creating new works (for course 1) and new approaches in acting (for course 2) that had never been offered in summer workshops (which often concentrates in acting, singing and dancing for the stage).

Sipat Lawin devised the workshops to open and share our unconventional and edge-work practices to the general public who also want to learn how to think and create outside the box. Edge-bound dare devil actors, directors, designers and technicians will facilitate the classes that will take part in form of textual, hands-on activities, interviews over coffee and lots of exercises.
