You will find many Barcelona based theatre schools in the centre of the city. One of them is the famous El Timbal, which was founded by the initiator of Els Joglars, Anton Font, and it has produced many well-known and popular actors and actresses.

It was the first theatre school in Barcelona, and it works with the CODA technique. The school is also a Worker Cooperative (Sociedad Cooperativa Catalana Limitada or SCCL) and a member of the Catalan Federation of Worker Cooperatives (la Federación de Cooperatives de Treball de Catalunya or FCTC).

Pa’Tothom is an independent acting school in Barcelona, and it works with a different type of teaching technique.

Its courses consist of integral trainings, but with great social awareness. Pa’Tothom is actually much more than a school, organizing, among other activities, many social events, workshops, shows, meetings and trips. You will definitely connect with like-minded people here and make friends for life.

The school Porta4 is also very well-know, as it has been operating as a theatre school and theatre exhibition hall since 2006. Independent and contemporary theatre of excellent quality is what they stand for.
