LAPA launched its first Theater Retreat in 2019. Theater Retreat is a series of specialized theatrical workshops that bring together a large group of local, regional, and international prominent instructors in their field, in an attempt to offer a variety of theoretical and practical workshops to theater amateurs and emerging artists. In 2020, and due to COVID-19 pandemic, LAPA conducted Theater Retreat 2 virtually. This year, LAPA's third Theatre Retreat focuses on three aspects of theatre in the form of Labs. The three aspects are theatrical Writing (Writing Lab consisting of a course on playwriting), Scenography (Scenography Lab consisting of three courses on Stage design, Costume design, and SFX Makeup), and Acting (Actors' Lab consisting of six courses on the body, the voice, the space, and many other elements).
