FREE for UniCamillus Students
DATES: April 6th – May 11th – June 15th
HOURS: 11:30-13:30 or 14:00-16:00
Our team of professionals are providing a safe space for you to explore your creativity, to surprise yourself, and boost your confidence.
We have joined forces to bring the most exciting and comprehensive masterclasses, created from the blend of our passions: theatrical arts and introspection through counselling and the English language.
Join us for a 2-hour session to play between the given and the potential world.
In a safe space, along with your peers and our guidance, be ready to have some fun while exploring your own self, your relation to your moving body, thinking mind, your emotions and the energy that connects us all.
Our aim for these open days is to support and uplift a willing group on a journey to discover strength through devising games and exercises that will connect you with your inner child, empower one’s presence and create a free platform to experiment with the English language.
These workshops are tailored around finding the joy of playing and harnessing it to conquer the English language and establish a physical and mental wellbeing vocabulary for the students to access. We believe theatre as a transformative power and can support people at any stage of their lives to learn more about themselves and grow into the person they want to become.
We hope to create a community that can approach uncomfortable situations and conversations with the best attitude and energy.
