About the subject's workshop
The main purpose of this activity is to use theater as a platform to talk about problems that students think are important. You need groups to work independently with one teacher because I can not work all at the same time.
We will work through the development of themes in concrete ideas that can be interpreted. I will facilitate the process, but I will encourage teachers and students to be creative and possess material information. The theoretical basis of this way of working was underlined in the previous workshop.
