'Classperimental' offers an extraordinary opportunity for young directors to get an inside view of the working process on a big sized stage straight from the creatives and collaborators of the upcoming shows.

During the stage rehearsals of our next shows and visiting the special theatrical departments several lectures will be held by the creators of the performances, both from the creative and from the technical side.
By the end of the workshop the young directors will be taught how the special capacities of an enormous stage influences, forms and inspires the work of a stage director.
The aim of the program is to give practical experience for the young directors by working together with the creative and technical departments of our theatre.
