The DUENDE School

The DUENDE School of Ensemble Physical Theatre is a professional training initiative. Based in DUENDE’s unique training process – Self-With-Others – we offer processes to develop physical discipline, presence, liveness, creative process, site-specificity, interdisciplinarity, psychophysicality, improvisation, interconnectedness, ensemble, and pedagogy.

The DUENDE School offers short workshops, residential workshops and extended training processes in various places round the world. In addition we offer performers shared and supported places for creative exploration, and we train teachers in Self-With-Others and experiential learning processes.

The DUENDE School recognises that everyone has the capacity to perform and so trains at all levels of expertise and experience.
