CREATION OF INTERDESCIPLINARY STAGE PROJECTS
The stage project can become a powerful and quality tool in the educational field. It is an agglutinating tool, motivating for all its members and capable of developing skills that, although contemplated and named to satiety in official curricula, are often difficult to work on in the ordinary context of a classroom.
Thanks to this course you will learn how to direct a theatre project, distinguishing the different languages that make up the play and being able to deal with diversity and make connections with different colleagues at the school in pursuit of a common goal. You will know how to shape a show from a topic of interest, from a text already written, from a need of the school ... and be able to establish communication with teachers of other subjects to integrate them into a global stage project where they can also cover content from their areas.
Through the stage project it is therefore possible to link up with project-based learning techniques and almost all the keys to cooperative learning, with the multiple benefits that all this brings.
The course is aimed at teachers and researchers at all levels of education who intend to use theatre as an essential instrument in the development of curricular and extracurricular skills and competences such as the improvement of self-esteem and interpersonal relations, teamwork, use of technology, cooperation, conflict resolution...
From an idea of the student himself (a text, a subject of a subject...), he will learn to develop in a practical way a sketch of his own project, knowing the phases of which it consists and making use of all the expressive resources at his disposal. The trainer will guide this process throughout the course and will accompany him on the path of stage creation.
By the end of the course, the company will give participants a certificate of attendance which includes detailed information about the course, such as title, programme and timetable. In addition, a Europass mobility certificate can be added on request.
1) To know the different languages that make up the play.
2) To learn to manage the phases in which a rehearsal process is divided: from the text or the idea to the staging.
3) To acquire basic notions in directing actors, which will be extremely useful to introduce students to drama.
4) To integrate different subjects: Music, Physical Education, Artistic Education, Language, Natural Sciences .... in a global and transversal project.
5) To use theatre training as a formula to develop multiple skills.
6) To use lighting as an essential technique in storytelling.
7) To encourage the active participation of students through playful activities and aesthetic enjoyment.
8) To stimulate our creativity, in the first place, and that of the students, in the second.
9) To be able to elaborate a staging
