WORKSHOPS

With our workshops we aim to empower students with a personal experience of verbatim theatre. We encourage students to develop awareness and understanding of civic responsibilities within a control environment, engage with immediate issues relating to social justice. In addition, we offer customized Workshops in theatrical production, design, and can include backstage tours; showing students the inner workings of the theatre. 

Towards Youth #RadicalHope Workshop

This workshop involves 2 in-school sessions with PH artists, one before and one after your students see the play. In the first session, students will be introduced to PH’s signature Verbatim Theatre-making techniques (including insights on interviewing, script development and performing ‘other people’s words’). Some of the key themes of Towards Youth – democracy, drama, and the power of young people as teachers and leaders – will be explored in this work. Students will gain meaningful insights about ethical storytelling/representation, as well as the power of their own ‘real-life’ narratives as a way of challenging stereotypes or assumptions. At the end of this session, two ‘Class Documentarians’ will be elected to conduct an exercise with their peers following their viewing of Towards Youth

The second session of this workshop involves PH artists coming back into the classroom and co-creating an original piece of verbatim theatre with the ‘Class Documentarians’ and their peers on themes and questions that matter to them. The exact duration of both in-school workshops can be customized.

 Fee: $20/student* total for both sessions (based on 10 students minimum)

Verbatim Essentials

PH does offer a condensed 60-minute version of our Verbatim Theatre Essentials workshop. If you and your class are unable to participate in the more extended Towards Youth workshops, please inquire about this alternative. 

Fee: $12/student* for 1 session (10 student min)

Contact info@projecthumanity.ca for more information or bookings. PH is always open to discussing cost in an effort to maximize access to groups.
