United Kingdom: Drama and Youth

We are planning to run this program in-person for summer 2022; however, we must remain flexible in our response to COVID-19 developments. The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are our primary concerns, so remote workshops may be a necessary alternative. This page will be updated as soon as guidance from NYU central is available.

Immerse yourself in the study of drama in education and theatre for young audiences in London. Through daily fieldwork, you will learn how to implement and devise process drama for diverse audiences. You’ll visit preeminent cultural institutions as well as fringe venues, participate in workshops, collaborate with leaders in the field of drama education, and examine British trends in creating theatre for young audiences.
