Open to Question.

από τoν Chris Cooper

Το master class απευθύνεται σε όσους δραστηριοποιούνται εκπαιδευτικά και καλλιτεχνικά σε ομάδες παιδιών και εφήβων. Αφορά όσους έχουν παρακολουθήσει στο παρελθόν σεμινάρια με εισηγητή τον Chris Cooper αλλά και όσους επιθυμούν να τον παρακολουθήσουν για πρώτη φορά. To διαδικτυακό master class είναι διάρκειας δέκα ωρών και θα πραγματοποιηθεί μέσω της πλατφόρμας του Zoom.

Θα εστιάσουμε κυρίως στην μελέτη και συζήτηση του θεατρικού έργου, στη σύνδεσή του με το εκπαιδευτικό δράμα και θέατρο (drama and theatre in education).Θα δοθούν βεβαιώσεις παρακολούθησης.

Πιο αναλυτικά από τον ίδιο τον Chris Cooper:

In English when we say an event, an act, or even aspects of somebody’s personality or behaviour, is open to question, we mean that there is doubt about the meaning or intention of the event, act, or person. Open to question requires further scrutiny and examination and thinking about what ‘lies beneath’ the surface.
All good drama needs to be open to question if we are to go beyond the immediately apparent, the superficial or literal, and make meaning. That is easier said than done because being open to question requires not only an open mind, but a creative one going beyond the information given. It demands mining deep for layers of explanation that get to the heart of the matter. It also requires the kind of questioning structures and skills that go beyond simplistic ‘question – first response’ interaction. It is complicated because every question must come through the Centre of the drama we are exploring with participants and, there is no doubt that how and what to ask when facilitating a drama is one of the hardest skills to plan for and even harder to execute in the moment.
In this masterclass Chris Cooper, Jian Xue International Director, and a theatre and drama facilitator of 33 years standing, will share his current thinking on the importance of questioning in theatre-in-education, process drama or any similar interactive process.
If you too are ‘open to question’, why not join us?
“To be or not to be?” Well, it all depends on the Centre and the context really….
