Presentation to Performance – A children’s theatre workshop!
This is a fun theatre workshop that we have conducted several times over the last six years, each time with very happy outcomes! The participants have a great time learning much more than just theatre – about themselves, their feelings and their motivations. This unique workshop is facilitated by Devendranath, our theatre resource person.
The exercises and activities in this workshop give children an opportunity to work on various aspects:
- Know about Voice – Pitch, Volume, Clarity, Tempo
- Know about Body and Movement with it
- Expressions & Emotions
- Body postures, its language and the possibilities
- Imagination, Memory, Senses, Concentration
- Exploring space, body, rhythm and expressions with music and external sounds
- Get the confidence to express in a group
- Respect other’s points of view
