Every year, Theater Mitu brings together a group of international participants, American teaching artists, and global masters in a program that combines rigorous physical training with intellectual investigation. These unique intersection develops a deep understanding of a disciplined artistic process in a larger world context with a sense of personal vision and taste.
An artist’s personal mythology is often overlooked in an attempt to focus on technique, achievement, and success. But what propels the artist? What do they believe in? What stories have formed who they are and what work they create? We believe the answers to these questions can only be discovered when the artist is asked to forget everything they think they know and in so doing, explore themselves outside of a context that is familiar: artistically, philosophically, aesthetically, and geographically. It is this belief that began the collaboration with international artists from a myriad of traditions and disciplines to create these dynamic training programs.
The details of the program change every year, but often happen in the months of June, July, or August. Exact details of the program (including tuition, dates, location, etc.) go out in January, with an application deadline usually falling around late March/early April. Previous locations have included Thailand, India and Japan.
