    The training involves learning different techniques of movement and theatrical interpretation, with the aim of acquiring a physical language and capacity for personal expression in Physical Theatre. In addition to the disciplines that form the foundation of the curriculum, the education also offers spaces for independent work and optional courses. The final year of the training is specifically dedicated to the scene and creation, providing tools for the production of the three diploma works in the sixth semester: one individual work realised independently, and two collective works directed by guest directors. Each year a tour of these works is planned in Switzerland and abroad.
