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.
UPDATE: Although we had to cancel our training due to COVID-19, we hope we can welcome Kostas in Budapest next year.
