    Workshops

    All of our workshops are facilitated by professional theatre artists who have years of experience working with children and youth in schools and community settings.

     

    We are available for half and full day workshops, as well as residencies.

    Grades K – 3 · Exploring Theatre
    Primary students will be introduced to drama through fun games and exercises designed to encourage confidence and creative risk-taking. This workshop includes dramatic role playing, introduction to character, tableaux (dynamic staging) and sound and movement exploration.

    Grades 4 – 6 · Creating Theatre
    Junior students build on their knowledge of drama in this workshop, which leads them through the process of creating their own short original piece of theatre. Students will discover what makes an engaging story, learn how parameters help guide the creation process and explore different ways to
    express narrative through image and staging.
     

    Grades 7 – 12/Sec I-V · Devising Theatre

    Older students learn from working with artists who are pushing the boundaries of the form and contributing to the canon of new Canadian work. They will explore and learn techniques for theatrical storytelling: determining the elements of a compelling story; generating material; how to collaborate and work as an artistic team; assessing parameters; and discovering surprising and unconventional ways to tell a story using theatrical expression, drawing on the company’s extensive devising background.
