Theatre based training programs

Theatre-based workshops provide an unconventional reflective space; the use of body and voice cuts down chatter and allows participants to get to the core of issues quickly. Action warms up people to what is happening within them and gives access to parts of their self that are not easily visible. Theatre can be used to examine various points of view collectively as a group and it brings fun, laughter and bonding into the learning environment.
