Every year – which begins after the summer holidays for us – the NOA opens up for a new group of about 8 people that join the full cycle of the NOA as a continuously working group. To apply for this you have to contact us and look out for one of the next NOA auditions. You should join at least one of the open NOA workshops or a fooling intense workshop with Jonathan Kay before you apply for this. This group is called the BEGINNERS.

BEGINNERS will come together 6 times a year for a two week period in 6 different cities throughout Europe. The first week will be taught by Jonathan Kay, and the second week will be taught by a performer that has already trained extensively with Jonathan. Each training period of two weeks will be concluded by a performance at a local venue, which could be a school or a university, or a political or a contemporary space – or also perhaps a theatre. The performance will be organised with our support and promoted by the students themselves.

How you participate

Apart from being fully engaged with NOA by practicing and performing, NOA students will contribute ‘in kind’ by organising and promoting workshops & performances. Each student will be responsible for one location. In this way the students not only explore their artistic and intuitive selves, but also their organisational skills, which is the other side of the coin. When you are moving forward in your inner and outer life you have to deal with both sides.

This cooperative work turns the NOA into a perpetual space: people that join the NOA for a workshop will be invited to travel as part of the NOA in the following year and can, in the long run, become facilitators in the NOA.
