This workshop will enable drama teachers to go in depth into actor training from a process perspective. It will consist of exploring various 'philosophies' that underpin many common drama exercises, such as improvisations and theatre games. It aims to equip teachers with an extended and informed vocabulary that will empower them to then create exercises that are suitable for their specific learning contexts.
Recommended for Drama CCA Instructors.
