Theater in Education: Create a Performance with Your Pupils

Description

Concept by Stefano Scotti

Theater in education can be considered one of the few subjects that teach the child how to participate in democratic life. Acting allows the child to develop feelings of empathy and respect towards other members of the community; it also allows for self-observation and emotional and cognitive understanding of problems. 

For this reason, theatrical education and dramatic play are important parts of children’s educational path.

In this course, participants will learn the most important steps to create a theatrical production together with their students. This creative process is innovative in that the pupils are the main protagonists of all the developmental stages of the play (theatrical activity).

After participating in a series of activities to strengthen the group’s feelings, teachers will be able to understand the techniques of collective writing that will be used to choose the title and storyline. They will learn how to assign the main theatrical roles according to the child’s developmental stage, and to use the stage elements (scenography, props, costumes).

Finally, course participants will obtain the tools required to effectively coordinate a play, while promoting the importance of critical analysis.

In this journey, the participants will learn to create a series of playful activities with the aim of promoting a sense of mutual trust and freedom from one’s own boundaries within a group and at the same time, developing the ability to collaborate with others, stimulating self-expression and communication, and encouraging creativity through imagination.
