So, a lot has changed in the past few weeks. Our camp to Shakespeare on the River Festival in Stratford- which we were set to sail on in April – has been postponed while we reconfigure our lives and our practise within this pandemic. Similarly, students’ exams with Trinity College (London) have also been postponed. We look forward to returning to these aspects of the curriculum later this year.
These times require us at Dramawerkz to think outside the box as educators and we plan to step up to the challenge. In term 2, we will be offering our classes online. For our group class students, it will be a great chance to ground our practical work in theoretical principles, learn how to collaborate despite logistical challenges and continue to build the creative community we’ve established. Private lessons are also available over Zoom or Skype.
I hope we can use this challenge to show students that art can thrive within any circumstance and any parameters. In fact, new and interesting ideas might be right at our doorsteps!
“We shall not cease from exploration,
and the end of all our exploring,
will be to arrive where we started
and know the place for the first time.“
