Since 2017, Gli Incogniti Academy takes place every year at the Théâtre des Quatre Saisons in Gradignan (France).
The Académie welcomes early music ensembles made up of students or young professionals. Its particularity is to combine in an equal and inseparable way chamber music courses and body and stage work.
This original approach reflects the work carried out within Gli Incogniti since the creation of the group (warm-ups, dance, relaxation and Alexander technique workshops).
The Academy is also an opportunity for each group to learn how to work as an ensemble, receiving advice from members of Gli Incogniti.
Finally, the Académie contributes to professional integration by offering the groups one or two concerts in theaters in the New-Aquitaine region (Théâtre des Quatre Saisons, Théâtre de la Coupe d'Or).

"We would like to write to you to say how grateful we are for our time at Gli Incogniti’s
Academie and how valuable we found it and continue to find it on our return, despite being
in quarantine. We found all the tutors inspirational, and really appreciated the warm, welcoming, kind
atmosphere combined with the highest level of artistry and professionalism. We have
returned to the UK with a fresh energy and with our eyes opened to new ways of thinking
"It was really a very beautiful Académie and we thank again all the team of Gli
Incogniti for these amazing moments of music and sharing. We keep very beautiful memories and a crazy desire to continue to
make lots of projects on our side".
Les Flots baroques
This week was for me like a sublime hike where we are well aware that we are visiting places
so magnificently far from everyday life: the ideal of a body that feels totally well, that breathes totally healthy air, and
therefore a light and joyful spirit. I keep this desire warm somewhere between my feet and my head. I notice that I am already
standing more upright in my chair, and more aware of my movements in general.
Thanks also for the carbon neutrality. It's incredible that it's so marginal (for now) to organize things like this".
In 2020, Gli Incogniti gave birth to
Green'cogniti, an initiative that aims to adopt eco-responsible practices in all areas of its activity
(hotels, transport, catering, office, technical...)
For the Academy, an eco-responsible
charter has been put in place (vegetarian meals delivered in washable crockery every evening, seasonal
fruits, travels in train, accommodation less polluting than a hotel...).
