Theatre Classes for Underserved Children
The BJAS Theatre-in-Education Trust brings children into the world of Drama and Theatre to instill confidence, improve cooperation, and build creativity. We work with disadvantaged children in Delhi in after-school or weekend workshops, offering programs similar to our Young Actors Club at a minimal fee.
If your group, school, or NGO would like to host TIE classes, call Sanjay Sujitabh on 9810234267.
Children in a TIE class have a safe space to deeply explore their own creativity through games, scene work and play writing. No limits or judgements.
By working with others without competition and engaging in games and performance, TIE class students build their confidence. Parents-- and students--are amazed.
There are no right answers, tests, or ranking in a Theatre in Educaton class. Students learn to support each other and work together to create great performances.
- Drama differs from ‘theatre’ which is oriented towards a performance targeted at an audience. Drama is grounded in the realities of a child’s life.
- In our TIE Theatre Classes for children, students create their own plays with characters drawn from experience, using a carefully planned sequence of Drama games, roleplays and activities.
- These focus on building students’ abilities in key areas including Breathing and Voicing, Imagination and Creativity, Movement, Performance Skills, Mime, Language Development and Script writing. Ice-Breaking and Trust exercises enhance the students’ ability to cooperate with others on creative projects.
