In this 9-week (high schools) or 4-week (middle schools) long residency, we bring three of our teaching artists to a local public school to work with a class chosen by the school’s drama or culture teacher. Through collaboration with our artists and each other, the students create a theatrical piece from their own writing and work. The final day of the program, they hold a free performance for their community.
This program focuses on theater performance and creation, while nourishing the interests and needs of your students. The teaching artists work on writing, acting, and dance and movement with the class. However, through the discussion of themes important to the students and their communities, the teachers can be sure to personalize the experience to the students. All leads to a spotlight on the new work created by this collaboration.
