About the U.T.E. Decentralized Academy

Creation is not only a matter of genius, it’s also a matter of meeting people, sharing ideas and passing down practices. The UTE Decentralized Academy creates the spatiotemporal condition for such a convergence of talents, knowledge and points of view.


Launched in 2012, the UTE Decentralized Academy enables young theatre makers from different cultural and artistic backgrounds to meet and learn from leading figures of international theatre in the context of masterclasses that take place throughout Europe.


Favouring transmission and inter-cultural dialogue, the Decentralized Academy contributes to the development of links between artists of the European continent, while enabling an act of transmission between young artists and great masters of our time, essential to the preservation and revitalisation of the European artistic heritage.
