Instável’s Production Course

Instável’s Production Course is an irreverent program. On the one hand, it draws on Instável’s experience in the development of training programmes, in the production of shows and in encouraging new professionals, reconciling essential and unavoidable subjects and trainers with younger ones; on the other hand, it does not intend to provide work models, but to provoke thought and synergies, various interactions, some controversial and others safer.
