Ier Acte - A program developped by La Colline-théâtre National, the Edmond de Rothschild's Foundations and the SNCF Foundation.
The program is structured to provide in-depth techniques to young actors before practicing professionally: This year, 13 youngs whose technique is already at a good level were selected in order to benefit from the benevolence and support of hardwired directors. The aim is to attempt to succeed the entrance exams of some of the most famous French theater schools.
On the 19th of september,master classes took place at the Colline National Theater, under the direction of Stéphane Braunschweig. Choregraphers, comedians, actors and directors are currently following the evolution of each and every actor, and help them sharpen their skills. The National Theater of Strasbroug (TNS) also welcomed the groupe for 15 days of intense work.
Professional comedians and directors selected by Stéphane Braunschweig have been graciously mentoring participants. Mentors serve as tutors, role models, confidants and advisors.
The classes are free of charge for participants, who have been selected through a rigorous application process and reach a broad and diverse group of emerging artists.
This year, a brand new partnership with the Théâtre National de Strasbourg has arisen, enabling the young actors to benefit from the knowledge of great directors during 2 weeks.
The program will culminate in a public performance on February 19th, 2016 where participants will propose a public reading at la Colline.
