WE ARE: CHILDREN OF... Series
‘WE ARE: Children of…’ Series is a program designed to educate, enlighten, empower, activate curiosity and involve fourth to eighth grade students in a theatre arts experience as they concurrently learn and write about children in history. For example: Children of the Civil Rights Movement, Children of the Revolutionary War, Children of Famous Presidents, Children of the French Revolution, Children of the Roman Empire, etc. Activities involving voice, movement, concentration, ensemblizing, character creation and improvisation are used as well as historical research, reading, writing and problem solving. Students immerse themselves into the lives of children in history through exposure to relevant historical information, stories, visuals and then use their experiences to write short monologues, dialogues, poems or scenes to perform for their classmates. We will design a ‘WE ARE: Children of…’ curriculum specifically for a residency in your school.
Five day residencies may culminate with a presentation for the school provided school has a sound system.
