“Theatre in Education is a process that uses interactive theatre/drama practices to help aid the educational process.”
The ground-breaking Theatre in Education (TiE) movement was first pioneered by the Belgrade Coventry in 1965, as a way to use theatre and drama to create a range of learning opportunities for young people. The title itself derives from Serbian capital Belgrade and is directly connected to the donation of wooden construction used to create a hall of 858 seats.
The Theatre in Education movement soon spread globally. Inspiring a wide range of interactive theatre with children and young people. Encouraging and empowering them to investigate challenging situations for themselves.
Theatre based learning uses actors to bring learning to life – we appeal to the senses of see, hear and feel by creating experiences.
Our training is observational and participative, using teams of our actors to bring it to life. We recognise that taking part in role-play is not for everyone, so we offer observational training – this is where two of our acting team demonstrate scenes related to the course and delegates observe and comment on the behaviours. Where a business is more confident working with actors, we take this to the next level with participative training so delegates get to practice their newly learnt skills.
