Mapping Love drama workshop

The workshops are FULL.

Thank you for your great support!

Mapping Love is a two-day drama workshop designed for young people aged 13-18 who love acting. We now call for schools to submit applications.

So much angst arises in young people today from the seemingly simplest of choices: What shall I wear today? Who should I eat lunch with? Do I like that boy? Does he like me? Do I like that girl? Does she like me? From these to questions that are more challenging: Where should I go to university? What career should I pursue? Who loves me? Who do I love? The adolescent path is fraught with so many choices made more complicated because a basic understanding of one’s own self is in a state of flux.

In Mapping Love, we will explore the themes of identity and love, and the turmoil inherent in the search for one’s role in life. We will look at WHAT we love, WHO we love, and HOW we love.
