Launched jointly by the Avignon festival and Pro Helvetia in 2013, the Séminaire en Avignon offers up-and-coming young stage practitioners a platform for in-depth exchange in both theoretical and practical fields. Young artists from several countries are selected and given the possibility of participating in an intensive week of discovery in connection with contemporary artistic expression at the festival in Avignon. The programme enables participants – accompanied by a coach – to watch and discuss a wide variety of performances, to meet professional theatre practitioners from Europe and beyond, and to take part in debates with artists, critics and specialists of the performing arts who are attending the festival.

– have continuous professional experience in Russia (at an institutional theatre or in the independent scene) as stage director, actor, performer, stage designer or choreographer;
– have some experience in planning and implementing projects of his/her own;
– be no older than 35 years old;
