The general aim of this workshop is to train educators in the use of theatrical and expressive techniques, to guide them and let them rediscover the potential of their personal and creative language. These paths will pass on some practical means from theater to educators with a focus on exercises and games that can be used in different situations in working with relationships, emotions, self-concept, shyness, attention, sociality, etc. In parallel with the practical activities, there will also be a theoretical part dealing with theater pedagogy.
Theater pedagogy is a tool that enables us to open hitherto unknown forms of communication, and which can develop new and surprising forms of expression.
