Among the principles of Theatre Olympics are the broadening of the knowledge about the achievements in theatre art and dialogue between subsequent generations of artists. The workshops aim at enriching the palette of tools of the young director thanks to the direct contact with remarkable practitioners of contemporary stagecraft who represent various styles and use different working methods. The exchange of experiences between the participants – both students or graduates from state theatre schools, as well as those who have not had formal schooling, but who acquire stagecraft experience thanks to work in independent theatre – is a key principle of the cycle.
