Free English workshops

Do you have any experience in (improvisational) theatre, and do you want to explore a more technical way of playing? Have you always wondered how actors and directors turn a piece of paper into a performance? This workshop is something for you!

You now have the opportunity to experience playing theatre by script in an international group. In this workshop participants will design a short play (5-10 minutes) in groups of 2 or 3 people. We will pass by different aspects of a classical form of theatre, such as: text-interpretation, character development, using the physical space etc.
This is also a chance to develop your own visions on theatre and to learn how to give feedback to others and to yourself.

We will gather on the 9th, 12th, 16th, 19th and the 23rd of June (Mondays & Fridays) from 19.00 to 21.00.

Four intensive workshops and one performance (23th of June) in which participants:

  • Learn how to use their (improvisational) theatre skills in designing a play
  • Practise reading and interpreting a script
  • Use the directors feedback in your performance
  • Create a short play with suspense and a climax
  • Gain knowledge about theatre terms and strategies
  • Increase personal acting skills and how to play together
  • Show their final results to a public in a performance


The workshop will be facilitated by Marleen Kop, an EVS volunteer from the Netherlands. She started playing theatre at the age of 4 and gained a lot of experiences in acting and performances. After all her time spent in theatres, in the spotlight or in the public, she is addicted to telling and listening to stories. There are a lot of different ways to tell a story and Marleen is highly interested in finding and exploring them on the stage.


Practical details:
The workshops take place on the 9th, 12th, 16th, 19th and the 23rd of June (Mondays & Fridays) from 19.00 to 21.00.

This program is part of the EVS project „Initiatives for Social Change” and is funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union. Therefore the participation is free but we have a limited amount of places.

After a few months living and volunteering in Cluj, the four EVS volunteers in Education Studio have passed through a huge variety of experiences. Some of them were awesomely nice, even if others were not so good. Here they would like to share their personal highlights, with the most beautiful, surprising moments, but also the embarrasing, desperating ones.

La sfârșitul lui septembrie s-a încehiat MINDSPEAK, proiect finanțat de programul Erasmus+ al Uniunii Europen, în cadrul căruia au avut loc mai multe activități și evenimente.

În luna iunie, 30 de tineri din 6 țări – Italia, Bulgaria, Cehia, Letonia, Lituania și Romania – au petrecut o săptămână în România în cadrul unui schimb de tineri. Participanții au învățat și au experimentat ce e Slam Poetry (poezia slam), într-un context non-formal de educație. Poezia slam (sau „spokenword” – cuvânt rostit) este o formă de literatură orală care vine din Statele Unite. Poetul își recită textul în fața publicului. Asta au făcut și participanții noștri, într-un eveniment la care au avut drept public comunitatea din Cluj-Napoca.

Textele scrise de participanți se regăsesc într-o broșură, care poate fi citită la Studio/

Experiența participanților a fost documentată, iar Irina Bujoreanu a creat un filmuleț care să o prezinte:

La Education Studio, am transformat metoda artistică Slam Poetry  într-un instrument de educație non-formală, care să contribuie la dezvoltarea personală a tinerilor. Maria Cărbunaru a creat o broșură care prezintă metoda și oferă sugestii pentru cei care vor să încerce metoda.

Vă invităm să fiți cu ochii pe noi și la următoarele proiecte internaționale pe care le vom organiza!
