“Akolouthontas to agori me ti valitsa”
(Following the boy with the suitcase) – Student Workshop

Workshop for secondary school students

 

Using Mike Kennye's excellent play, "Boy with a Suitcase", we create a drama workshop, which aims to make participants express own thoughts and to explore the views of others, through interaction, without emphasizing on acting skills. We wish to strengthen the initiative, to develop imagination and to be able to process the social issue of refugees in such a way so that it will concern us. We hope for emotional engagement and empathy. We will use theatrical games, exercises of activation, coaching, rhythm, fantasy, dynamic images, body expression, pantomime, role playing, status exercises, improvisations, dramatization and forum theater techniques.
