Young Theatre Makers 2018: Showcase & Discussion


Young Theatre Makers is a bilingual learning scheme that uses playscripts as a framework for discussion and critical thinking. Intended for young people in schools and youth centres, Young Theatre Makers focuses on the process of analysing and understanding a play and creating a work-in-progress staging in the theatre.
We believe that theatre mirrors life. The themes of these four plays resonate with the young participants, bringing up interesting debate and dialogue about themselves and the world around us. By combining performance and discussion, we hope to uncover just how much the arts can help us understand life.
