Bravo Rising International Summer Institute 2017

The Absolutely Fabulous Theatre Connection (AFTEC) is excited to be back with the Bravo Rising International Summer Institute in 2017. This summer our work will be all about DREAMS. We all dream from time to time. Our dreams and nightmares can tell us a lot about ourselves, how we feel, what we want and what we are scared of. Young people are often told to follow their dreams and to ‘dream big’ about the future, but what happens when real life isn’t that easy? These workshops will explore the blurred lines between dreams, nightmares and reality. We are bringing three expert artist educators from the UK. They will guide you through this journey in your choice of one of three theatre workshops. The two-week wokshop will culminate in a final showcase performance.
