SDEA's inaugural course on drama facilitation for social contexts. Developed and facilitated by experienced applied drama practitioner Michael Cheng for both drama practitioners and non-drama practitioners.
Drama activities can be used to establish relationships, develop group cohesion, develop skills, and as a springboard to activities.
This course is a practical dive into the act of facilitation of drama activities for non-performative intentions and objectives.
Participants will reflect on principles of improvisation in facilitation, enhance their facilitator’s presence and body language, and build a reflexive practice.
It is designed for those new to the field, as well as those who have some experience and want to become a better drama facilitator.
