A SHARED VISION
PadovArts Center was born from a shared vision conceived between The School for Theatre Creators and Barabao Teatro. The School for Theater Creators, (now PadovArts Academy), an international theater school that was founded by Paola Coletto in the US, had regular coursework based between Chicago and Los Angeles, with workshops and seminars around the world. Barabao Teatro is a professional theatre company based in Padua, Italy. Both of these organizations have their roots in the school of Jacques Lecoq and the tradition of physical theater. Throughout the years, each one of them developed their own unique identities and their current collaboration is yet a new way of advancing their work and the field of movement-based theatre.
