We’re very pleased to have Donatella De Paoli speak about April’s topic - Beyond!

Sacred Spaces for Creativity Theatres have been tasked with leading artistic people for ages, and have since learned their own way of doing it. Distractions of any kind during production, rehearsals, or meetings hamper the creative process, and so solutions have been developed by directors to sanctify the time and space set aside for producing. What is there to be learned from theatres – and how can theatre directors create sacred spaces and moments for creativity?
