Helikos School

Helikos International School of Theatre Creation, Italy

Helikos International School of Theatre Creation was founded in Florence, Italy by Giovanni Fusetti.  

​Between 2010 and 2014, Helikos welcomed students from all over the world to participate in an advanced professional training in theatre creation and movement theatre, in the form of two Three-Year Programs (2010/2013 & 2013/2014) and a One-Year Program (2013/2014).

After 4 years of activity in Florence, at the end of the 2013/2014 season, Helikos stopped offering the long term programs in Italy. In 2019 Helikos opened a studio in Padova, and offered a three month Pedagogic Training.

A new long term program is in the process of being devised and planned.

Hovering on the peaks and valleys of my poetic mind
Eons of storytellers and fools were whispering verses
Like the madman who dances with fairies in the woods
I saw the spiral swinging softly from the branches
Kindness and rigour will be our power
Offered to the world in countless acts of beauty
Surprised and grateful by the endless renewal of joy
