Courses Level Two

B1 Theatre & Drama for Creative Self-expression

Honing personal expressive and performative skills 

Often in the grind of daily work and life, we forget the creative person within! We experience life but fail to explore the possibility of expressing it such that it becomes a multi-layered communication - with our self, with others, and with the world.

 

A theatrical piece that is built on personal experience and expression is shaped with and through contemplation, story-making, role-play, design of metaphors, writing, and rehearsals. This process makes it possible to tell stories in startling and revealing ways.
