InSite has provided support for two young actor/drama teachers’ to set up their own organisation and explore what it is like to operate an independent organisation. Fanni Fodor and Timea Török have created two TIE programmes that they will tour to schools in Hungary.
We will not be performing our living room theatre performance The Edge by Edward Bond any more according to current plans. However there is a professional recording of the performance, created in 2017, that is now available publicly.

How can drama help engaging in democracy and creating a democratic classroom? What sort of dramatic tools can teachers of humanities use with 11 to 15 years old’s in the classroom? What opportunities do teachers have in the Hungarian school system to engage in social issues? How can democracy be perceived in relation to the teacher – pupil relationship?
