Would your child love to immerse her/himself in creativity, imagination and to act along with other children sharing the same interest?
The Children's Theatre Laboratory offers not only regular classes at Odin Teatret every Tuesday afternoon but also ongoing workshops for both younger and older children. While playing and having fun, the children will investigate and explore existing as well as newly discovered techniques, different approaches to art of acting and forms of expression. Examples include: Work with scenic interpretation through Indian martial art with sticks, circus acrobatics, step dance, African drums, mime, shadow games or something completely different! The children will also practice improvisation and theatre sports and be encouraged to contribute with their own ideas.
Short presentations will be arranged at the end of each class.
Theatre is not just about "being seen on stage". Theatre is more importantly about collaboration, about allowing space for each other, about communicating feelings and imagination through creativity and presence. It is also about giving children a unique opportunity to be inspired by talented international artists within a framework where nothing is "wrong".
The children will be guided by dramaturg Anna Marie Houe together with guest teachers in exploring different ways of expression and art forms. The weekend workshops are hosted by guest teachers from a variety of artistic backgrounds, traditions and cultures.
