Calling All Thespians

As part of March Theatre Month, the Municipality of Funchal in association with the Teatro Municipal Baltazar Dias will be holding a Theatre Training Initiative – ‘Theatre is Urgent’ training course between the 5th – 8th March from 6.30 pm – 11 pm.  The 18-hour course, directed by Diana Barnabé is for professional, amateur actors and theatre students aged 18 years and above.

The course aims to provide students with a wide range of theatrical tools, including voice and body awareness, effective use of space, improvisation, memorisation and interpretation of texts.

In 2017, Diana created DESCARRILAR, which comprises of research and creation workshops that provide adult personal training and development through theatre.  The workshops are in their seventh year, and Diana regularly travels and trains in Portugal and the UK, most recently, at Leeds University.

Diana is also running a young adults course, aged 13 – 18 on the 9th and 10th of March.

Registration is free and for further details and to register your interest, please contact the theatre on
