Autumn 2 – 2017/18
Stretch your students’ concepts of what theatre can be! This issue of Teaching Drama is all about pushing genre boundaries – from gig, immersive and community theatre to using drama for engaging students with music, maths, literature, history and PSHCE.
Explore Punchdrunk’s new Enrichment programme which is immersing children in some unique theatre experiences; the challenges of adapting classic novels for the stage; and bringing theatre to chronically and terminally ill children. Plus, how gig theatre is meshing drama and music performance; preparing students for life after school through the drama curriculum; ensemble approaches for rehearsal; a new online database of drama teachers; the National Theatre Podcast Channel; and a walk through the conference programme for 2018’s Music & Drama Education Expo | London.
