Theatre At Work takes an active approach in facilitating change using storytelling, mask-work, creative movement and role-play. Through projective play, purposeful improvisation, and performance, participants are invited to explore their life experiences, find possible solutions to challenges, rehearse desired behaviors, practice being in relationship, expand and find flexibility between life roles, and perform the change they wish to be and see in the world.

Theatre At Work - Come play with us!

  • Hear Me! - Tell your story through the art of 'Spoken Word'
  • See Me! - Use the mask and uncover your true self
  • Feel Me! - Move your body into a place of well-being
  • BE - Out There! - Practice being who you really are.

Workshops are tailored to the needs of each group of participants. Games, discussion, and project criteria is relevant, and moves the work toward specific goals and objectives of discovery and learning.

ie. For immigrant youth, goals may be to:

  • Increase peer support and social networking
  • Enhance a sense of community connectedness
  • Develop self-confidence and a sense of empowerment
  • Improve skills in problem-solving and teamwork
  • Improve English language skills

Learning culminates in a performance piece that is developed, rehearsed, and performed for an audience. Through presentation, participants demonstrate what they have learned, and can experience the pride of accomplishment.

Following the performance piece, the cast and crew host a question and answer session that allows the audience to learn more about each participant's journey through the program and what their next steps will be.
