Teatro Punto is a theatre company under the artistic leadership of Katrien Van Beurden and Carlos Garcia Estévez. It develops performances and workshops, based on Modern Commedia dell' Arte. With an international team of actors, it is active in countries such as The Netherlands, America, France and Spain. Its workshops are designed for professional actors and for theatre academies such as the Arnhem acting school, the Wagner University in New York and the Frank Sanders Music Theatre Academy in Amsterdam.

The company makes theatre where the actor is the author of the story. He does this through movement, text, techniques, imagination and the drift to perform. The main source of inspiration is Commedia dell'Arte. With its famous masks and archetypes. Teatro Punto occupies itself with the archetypes of today while developing a very characteristic and contemporary actors' theatre. Full of acting possibilities it is precise and vulnerable, yet above all else it is alive.

All the actors and directors of Teatro Punto will be teaching at the
school. The teachers all speak English and apart, Italian, Dutch,French and Spanish.

TP training festival
The last week there will be a training Festival. During that week there will be several workshops and seminars from directors, actors and mask makers from Italy, Spain, Unites States, Belgium and France, specialised in mask making, physical theatre, voice, mime, theater philosophy and text and Movement.

Every night the actor/students who did the month workshop will perform at the festival.

Judith Chaffee, Boston University
"Teatro Punto creates an energetic, focused, and exciting atmosphere in which actors become willing to take risks and laugh at their mistakes. My students who have attended at their trainings rave about it."

Ellada Evangelou, Director Rooftop theatre, Cyprus
"Teatro PUNTO has developed an approach to Commedia Dell Arte through a careful process of deconstruction (of Traditional Commedia Dell Arte), the analysis of the elements (movement, mask, character etc) and the reconstruction into a new "type" of Commedia "
