Master Open Class Series 1
Teaching Controversial Issues through Drama and Picture Story Books
Using a picture story book called The Conquerors by David McKee, the workshop will model an exploration of the experiences and consequences of war and invasion. The workshop will also use speeches from William Shakespeare's Henry V to enrich reading experiences. Drama provides the safe distance to explore the realities of conflict beyond children's own enactments of war in the playground and digital game playing. The workshop will also model techniques for encouraging deep reflection on and engagement with reading and rich dialogue emerging from the feelings and experiences of the drama.
Prof. Jonothan Neelands (Warwick University, UK)

Teaspoon of Light ; Applied Theatre in Earthquake Zones
A discussion of the work undertaken in Christchurch
schools immediately following the February 2011 earthquakes. Using a simple story and a process drama approach, children engaged in dance and visual arts making to help fix a torn cloth of dreams. The work has evolved into a UNESCO funded theatre in education programme that has worked with over 3000 children in some of the most quake effected
areas of Christchurch. Thinking about how to help children reimagine futures and make sense of ongoing trauma through an arts-based approach is at the centre of this work.
