A 7-day theater workshop conducted by Jijo K Mathew (Actor), Abhija Sivakala(Actress) and Firos Khan (Theatre Director).
Theatre is an organic platform that gives a better perception in a child’s individual, social and academic development through training of the body and the mind.
What do children benefit from theatre?
Theatre demands the attention of your body and mind at the same time. One needs to think as well as put oneself into action simultaneously. Action, of course includes your body. By putting your body into action, you will start to understand it better. This understanding helps to overcome its inhibitions. Physical training helps to achieve the control over your body and mind. There will be a lot of fun and creativity involved in the whole process which will make it easier to achieve the goals.
The super-objective of the syllabus is to empower students; to inspire them to fulfill their potential in terms of self-knowledge and self-esteem. It aims to extend them physically, mentally and emotionally so that they become active, thinking, sensitive adults who know the benefits of being positive, creative and expressive; who can find their 'voice', listen to other voices, and work collaboratively as a member of a team. The theatre process should develop in the student the urge to QUESTION, to SEARCH FOR ANSWERS, to make DECISIONS, to be CHALLENGED, to SOLVE PROBLEMS, to be INDEPENDENT.
