Live the life you want

Do you wish for a career change?

Is there something you’ve always wanted to try but haven’t yet?

Do you have any dream jobs that you would love to do?

If you don’t know how to start and get lost in your thoughts, it will be very difficult to find a way for a meaningful life.
Theatre&Design approach is about how to make it easier.
The key is to start slowly and test out your assumptions so you know you’re on the right track.

During the workshop, you will experience how to connect with your intuition and learn to design a project of your ideal work/life and the steps to go in the right direction.

“Theatre&Design for growth” is the method where life design and theatre are combined together.

Two days of experiential workshops to orient your life towards
the future you want.

You will learn to make the right decisions to achieve your goals, how to approach a new project in private as in professional life without giving up. You will have a structured project that you can start to create immediately, you will be part of a new group of friends and supporters with whom to grow.


Don’t take our word for it – here’s what the partecipants say:

The interdisciplinary nature underlying all the work is coherent, studied and well organised. I appreciated all the body work because I think that only starting from the body you can get your true essence.

To what extremes can a job compromise and destroy my quality of life?

Now I know clearly that I have chosen MY life, the one I have wanted for so long and that I am building with hard work, tenacity and love. The workshop is a formative experience useful to redirect your life, your choices and your future.


I am very interested in this approach to life. I loved to share with others this “work” and the energy that has been created in the group. I will treasure from the beginning and in time what I started today. The workshop is an opportunity to build the compass that helps you to direct your life towards what is best for you.

It’s a way to your well-being.

I have attended Ivana’s workshop about theatre and design. I was so curious to discover more and so surprise to see how many techniques were combined, from yoga to communication, acting to mindfulness and many more.

A unique experience!

The workshop was very dynamic, profound and fun and I have discovered so much about myself. Ivana has super sparkling energy and grounded presence. She is a professional and a natural teacher.
She made us feel at home and everything was flowing perfectly. I loved every exercise. Can’t wait for another one ♥ Thanks Ivana!

The Holistic approach

The integration of two disciplines, theatre and design, allows us to work on different aspects of a human being: the body, the spirit, and the mind. The balance between these three parts allows for a rational design but inspired by the most intimate part of ourselves. Without this deep connection every project about our lives can be ineffective. The balance between rationality and feeling is the solid basis on which you can build a new life.

Thanks to these different approaches we will work on these fundamental aspects:

The workshop will be held by
Ivana Franceschini 

Professional actress and designer with a Master’s degree from the Polytechnic of Milan, Italy. After graduating as an actress according to the physical method of Jacques Lecoq, and after years learning a solid method of design, she decided to go deeper and follow her artistic passion by dedicating herself to the theater. She deepens the art of acting with international masters including Robert Castle and Michael Margotta of the actor studio in New York and with the master Jurij Altchitz of the great tradition of the Russian School. Always flanking training seminars with important directors and actors, she began her profession as an actress and theatre teacher which she would continue for over 15 years. In 2010, her desire to find new forms and places to bring art closer to people led her to launch a creative start-up and later to establish a cultural center in Como, her hometown in Italy. These intense experiences opened her mind to international scenarios and in 2018 she decided to follow a new path by moving to the UK. It was in Brighton that she found the right space to rethink her personal and professional journey, and she experimented with how theatre exercises integrated with design techniques could be decisive tools to redirect her life. In 2018 she developed her own “theatre&design for growth” method to help people become aware of their potential and train their skills to create and live the life they really want. She teaches this method through workshops and meetings in the UK and Italy. For a year now she has accompanied this life with the practice of yoga and meditation.

The workshop is hosted by Body&Brain
