The rich program of POLIS Teatro Festivsl, follows the performances with moments of meeting with critics and scholars, training activities and participatory projects, in a perspective of inclusion and active citizenship that has been the festival’s soul since its first edition.

Following the positive experiences of collaboration with the Master’s degree in International Cooperation on Human Rights and Intercultural Heritage (Dipartimento di Beni Culturali – Università di Bologna), POLIS Teatro Festival relaunches with a new formative project for the international students in Ravenna. The festival proposes to I-Contact students a workshop on urgent contemporary issues through contemporary theatrical languages, completely in English, which will take place during the 2024 edition of POLIS Teatro Festival, that put on its center a German Focus. It is a workshop that creates a critical observatory, stimulating active participation and the creation of a restitution that brings back a view related to their skills and the content of the performances.

The workshop is coordinated by the international critic Tom Mustroph.
