RESIDENCY GOALS

Using theatre as a tool to learn about one’s community and history. Empowering people to write, craft and share their own worldview. Learning to value other’s unique skills through collaborative creation. Finding connections between different people and views through storytelling.

 

Theatre can help bring student’s personal relevance in their other studies. Students learn that their voices and ideas will be honored and respected by their peers. Students learn to connect history and art and other subjects to real relevance to their daily lives and concerns. Students learn to create a bigger, more impressive project by having their ideas blended, changed, added to and collected with those of their peers. Community and peers see the power of live theatre to speak directly to them.
Students discover the power and strength of collaboration.
