SCHOOL LIVING THEATER
Description and main aims
Draft proposed program
An experimental training which aims to be a challenge in the newadays panorama of European trainings. A mixture of language training and theater. Yes, because theater is a tool to improve and work together, enjoy and work in a different way. While mobility projects are useful to improve English language in an international enviroment while living immersed in the Italian culture.
"School living theater" will be conducted in English by experts in using theatrical works of our cultural and literature and participants will learn while doing theater exercise.
The training can be considered a multilingustic and multisectorial experience enriched by the intercultural dimension of being together in Soverato as a team of international guests.
it's not just the formal/non formal dimension of the training but, also the informal dimension of participants welcomed in Italy and part of a community project.
The program is designed to increase the actors’ expressiveness through “instrument classes” in voice, speech, dialects, and extensive physical training.
Challenge your point of view about theater
Create a community of like-minded artists
Discover your voice as an actor, director, or writer
What is important to underline is the use of Italian texts and books of our literature to enrich the learning process with a particular knowledge of the local writers and also contemporary works on Calabria region.
A common base of the main operas of the Italian History of theater plus the reading and - if possible - the intervention of local actual writers nun known in the international context.
