Teacher Training Academy
The academy’s training programme familiarises secondary school teachers with the theory and practice of applied theatre and with its artistic dimensions, the ultimate goal being a new, totally restructured approach to education. Using “learning by doing” as a springboard and theatrical techniques as a tool, teachers will practice using their knowledge and empathy to team management in an environment that ensures both free expression and safety.
More specifically, this year we will focus on:
- the principles of devised theatre
- teamwork and how it is combined with the handling of adolescent groups
- theatrical aesthetics and how they lead to sound artistic results.
It is a demanding creative process in which the teacher makes artistic and strategic decisions with the active involvement of students at all stages. Finally, there will be the opportunity to work directly with the facilitators of the initiative and receive on-the-spot supervision from them.
Participants in the Academy must have had some previous experience of theatre in education and must currently be running a school theatre group so that the theoretical training and practice and the on-the-spot supervision offered by the academy can be utilised.
We look forward to welcoming you! Have a great year of theatre!
