How different is it to explore situations from a role than exploring it through distancing conventions? What structures, approaches are there to putting participants into role? What sort of approach is “living through drama”?
These are the questions that participants will explore in Kostas Amoiropoulos’s whole day workshop. This practice centred course will build on collective experimentation, and will connect to working with different age-groups.
Engaging experientially with the fictional world is central to process drama. The nature of this engagement and the characteristics of the fiction offer a number of important theoretical and practical questions to be discussed by drama practitioners. This series of ninety-minute online seminars discusses some of the key concepts through the analysis of moments of practice in five events led by an international group of experts.
Key elements discussed will be contextualisation, metaxis, protection into role, reflection, artistic form, the extreme and the tragic.
Seminar leaders: Prof. David Davis, Dr. Kostas Amoiropoulos, Chris Cooper, Cao Xi, Dr. Adam Bethlenfalvy (short bio below)
We are able to share a new video about our Theatre in Education programme titled The Package, exploring dealing with loss and grief. This production for 8-10 year old was created in co-production with Round Table TIE Company and The GAP Arts Project, designed and directed by Ceri Townsend. The video was directed by Zsófi Szilágyi.
“I had to rewire part of my thinking to be able to see through it entirely and connect all the dots, exactly why are we doing this first and then that, but once I could do it, it all seemed very logical. There was even some thinking or organizing patterns which I discovered I can use for not business-related purposes as well, which is a bonus without a doubt.” – you can read one of the Hungarian participants, Daniella Martin’s review about CREAction4EU online training course.
