Production videos

In order for your students to be really engaged in the process during workshops, we will send you an educational package concerning the production you wish to work on.

An educational package includes: 

​- a summary of the play and a short biography of the author;

- Director's notes;

- an analysis about the main themes, the most appealing topics and leading characters;
- quizzes and exercises.​

Your students will get the chance to see our filmed productions online on demand (VOD). The codes to stream videos will be provided by us and valid for an entire week, thus you will be able to watch the show anywhere and anytime! In case you need to extend the duration of the codes, you can contact us and we will provide a targeted solution for your school.

Learning English through drama

Facilitators will focus on a range of acting techniques and exercises – characterisation, ensemble work, movement and improvisation depending on the students' level of English language.


Then, one of the following points will be explored, in particular:

- a dramatic text as a literary object to get more insights about the main themes with a focus on the relevance of the play nowadays;
- the theatricality of the text to engage students to use their imagination;
- interactive games and creative exercises to enhance concentration and expression

- the mise en scene: from the text to the stage.


Finally, the students will work on a specific scene in the script (chosen by us or by the teachers).

Online exercises

The students who took part in the workshop will receive questions that they can answer and discuss them during the class.

 

Schools interested in an additional material will receive guidelines to write their own adaptation of the play. The pupils' work (written or audiovisual) will then be published on our website and our social media platforms (#YourTurn).
