A participatory theatre event
- The students are introduced to the world of the story and the characters within it.
- We work with a small group of students so each individual can contribute to bringing the story to life. They will experience it not just as themselves but ‘in roleâ from the viewpoint of people inside the narrative.
- The students’ investment grows with the story because they see their ideas being incorporated.
âI really enjoyed being able to take part and feel like we were there, feeling the pain and sorrowâ.Â Student, Brinsworth School, Rotherham
