The word “audience” can refer to many different groups or communities: children in a classroom, patrons in a theatre, spectators on a street. How do we -- teachers, teaching artists, university students, recreational leaders, language and speech arts specialists, theatre directors, actors, integrated arts educators, and community leaders-- engage an audience with our work in the theatre and in the drama classroom? You'll work with Ireland’s finest drama practitioners and theatre artists, with affiliations through Upstate Theatre and the Samuel Beckett Centre at Trinity College in Dublin, to explore facilitation, devising, and playwriting/adaptation, along with approaches to using dramatic activities to create a context for theatre work.
