I first started working with the Belgrade in 2011 as part of the Arts Gymnasium project, in which I was involved in researching the impact of theatre and performance on the health and wellbeing of people aged 50+ in Coventry.
During our work together I have have enjoyed the creativity, the increased understanding of self and others and our world around us, of exploring ways to learn through physical, cognitive, emotional acts, which can transcend disciplinary borders, and bring those involved to a place of new understanding. In this interactive workshop on 11th November at the DMLL, the Belgrade Theatre will explore the relationship between theatre and learning in higher education presenting exciting opportunities for enlivening teaching and learning practices and the translation and sharing of knowledge.
Prior to this event, the Belgrade are hosting a 2 day Inspiring Curiosity Conference (20th & 21st October) to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Theatre in Education (TiE) at the Belgrade Theatre. The conference is being delivered in partnership with the University of Warwick, Coventry University, Warwick Arts Centre and the RSC.
