The workshop

Inspired by the “Tandem language learning” conversation meetings, the “Tandem Theatre” workshop is a mini-theatre course conducted in two languages, Italian and English, to involve both young internationals and young Italians. The participants will thus have the opportunity to practice the Italian language in an informal and creative context and to meet other young people from different countries.

Theatre practice allows one to quickly improve language skills and create connections with others: a great way to put oneself to the test while having fun!

The workshop is suitable for both those who want to improve their Italian language skills and those who want to test their expressive abilities in an international context.


The workshop includes a learning path structured in different stages: we will focus on group building, improve individual expressive skills and practice acting techniques on small theatrical scenes.

The main topics of the course will be:

  • articulation and pronunciation of words;
  • expressive reading;
  • acting in short theatrical scenes.
