A global community using the performing arts to educate, inspire, and entertain.

“Why do we sacrifice so much energy to our art? Not in order to teach others but to learn with them what our existence, our organism, our personal and repeatable experience have to give us; to learn to break down the barriers which surround us and to free ourselves from the breaks which hold us back, from the lies about ourselves which we manufacture daily for ourselves and for others; to destroy the limitations caused by our ignorance or lack of courage; in short, to fill the emptiness in us: to fulfill ourselves…art is a ripening, an evolution, an uplifting which enables us to emerge from darkness into a blaze of light.”  ~Jerzy Grotowski

American Laboratory Theatre in association with The Eureka Institute proudly presents this powerful one-week session of formal theatrical training based upon the research, work, and principles of world-renowned directors Jerzy Grotowski, Michael Chekhov, Constantin Stanislavski, and Antonin Artaud. The Eureka Center, located in Sagle, Idaho, with its mountain views and pristine surroundings will serve as a perfect location for this one-week intense and personal journey. 

International artistic directors will use theatre as a tool, leading participants on a journey of self discovery designed to uncover the unique and captivating qualities and creativity in each individual.
