Kawalis Zoukak takes you behind the curtains in a series of training courses covering various aspects of theatre-making: from acting to devising, to writing, to directing, to production, in addition totheatre as a psychosocial mediation tool. The program is designed in a way to make it possible for theatre practitioners and individuals wishing to develop their skills in theatre-making, to build a personalized learning training path throughout the diverse courses proposed over the year.

The 4th cycle of Kawalis Zoukak - The Training Program will run from the end of January until the beginning of April 2023, with 5 training courses:

Participants can apply to  one or more of the above-mentioned training courses. Once a participant is selected for any training, they will be asked to commit to attending the 3 sessions of the Collaborative Communication (CC) training, which is a prerequisite for the entire program. 

The CC training will run on the following dates: 

  • Thursday - Feb 2, 2023
  • Monday - Feb 6, 2023
  • Thursday - Feb 9, 2023

Due to the limited number of participants for the CC training, multiple runs will take place throughout the year. 

These training courses are interconnected with Zoukak’s other programs, so participants will eventually have the chance to qualify for other opportunities moving forward. Stay tuned!
