A class trip to the theater
How to communicate with children in the theater and about theater
Why go to the theater with your class?
What criteria to use when selecting a performance?
How to prepare children for visiting the theater?
Meeting live art, that is with live actors “here and now” is an exceptional experience for a class as a whole. The visit to the theater then becomes an impulse to expressing one’s opinions and feelings that can be shared by the children with each other. Through this (besides the relationship to cultural values) we also develop the ability to listen, understand, empathize, and communicate.
In the workshop, we will learn in an interactive way about different methods that will prepare a class for a theater performance visit, and about various approaches to its reflection. We will also discover what is good to know before we set out to the theater with children. Through a group visit of a performance we will search for situations that encourage participation of the spectators, and we will analyze how and why children react to them.
