Integrating Drama and Performance With Nature

An 'Integrating Drama & Performance With Nature' workshop is taking place on 28th August with TCV Scotland.

Integrating Drama and Performance With Nature

About Integrating Drama and Performance With Nature

Nationally, participation in the arts is dropping each year, and connection with wildlife is also suffering with 7 out of 10 feeling out of touch with nature.

Integrating these aspects for children in a natural setting can have positive results, both in terms of offering a more liberating and imaginative setting and including educational elements of science and nature.

This workshop is designed to give you the tools to plan outdoor sessions with groups with knowledge of how to integrate local wildlife into lesson plans.

Feel confident in identifying aspects of the outdoors, to be able to incorporate native wildlife, trees and flowers into acting based activities.

Throughout the workshop there will be a chance to try out various warm-up activities, concentration games, imagination exercises, storytelling and character work, plus access to various resources in nature identification, citizen science, theatre and literature which can form part of a lesson programme.

We will cover issues such as public speaking, shyness, confidence building and anxiety issues in young people, with the outdoors being an ideal setting to work towards overcoming some of these challenges.

There will be an indoor introduction and discussion followed by a longer practical session outdoors.

Experience Level - No experience required.

What to bring with you – Pen and paper, packed lunch, water, suitable outdoor footwear/jacket

Location – TCV Scotland, Balallan House, 24 Allan Park, Stirling FK8 2QG

Catering – Please bring a packed lunch

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Integrating Drama and Performance With Nature are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
