The Bilingual Acting Workshop is Moving into Residency at the Living Theatre!

We at the bookshop thought you, our readers, might be interested in a new opportunity for bilingual actors: Amy Werba's Bilingual Acting Workshop (BAW), founded in 1995 in Paris under the belief that "every person – no matter what their background – speaks the same language, the language of the heart," is now offering classes in New York City. Enrollment is now open for the Spring program. The Theater and Film classes are taught in English but participants are encouraged to also perform in their native languages.

BAW is not only an acting school, but also a production company and a networking environment that fosters collaborations among its participants and the artistic community. It is launching an initiative called "New Voices, New Projects" in a multicultural and multilingual environment, simultaneously in Paris and in New York, with the purpose of providing a platform for artists to exhibit, network, and create new projects.

As of next week, BAW begins there official residency at Judith Malina's renowned Living Theatre ( Founded in 1947 as an imaginative alternative to the commercial theater by Judith Malina, the German-born student of Erwin Piscator, and Julian Beck, The Living Theatre has staged nearly a hundred productions performed in eight languages in 28 countries on five continents - a unique body of work that has influenced theater the world over.
