An Intensive Summer Workshop 2023

Threads of Creation

From July 10th to August 4th, 2023

Dear friends, 


Theatre No Theatre, the new association supporting Thomas Richards’ research on performing arts is pleased to announce that Mr. Richards, assisted by Jessica Losilla-Hébrail and Hyun Ju Baek, both long-term members of the Workcenter, will be holding a workshop entitled Threads of Creation, in Pontedera, Italy. The course for actors, directors, students, and those interested in the practical knowledge of the performing arts will be held from July 10th to August 4th, 2023. The four-week workshop will strive to unearth the creative potentialities of each participant through work on the relations between precision and organicity, tradition and individual work, as well working on action, movement, rhythm, text development, composition, singing, and the living voice.

During the workshop, the participants will come in contact with the basic principles of Mr. Richards’ approach to theatre creation. As well, the participants will take part in singing sessions exploring an approach to work on song and action that has been at the heart of Richards’ research for more than 35 years. Such practice explores the potential impact that the melodic and rhythmical qualities of a given song can have on the person who sings.


The workshop will also be open to a limited number of people wishing to observe the processes for the whole period of the program. 

If you are interested in participating or observing, please send your CV and motivation letter to:
