Course Content (Syllabus)
The course is delivered in a laboratory/experiential manner. Theatre education that aims particularly in the evolvement of expression and communication, is achieved through improvisations, theatre games and experiential exercises that are executed both individually and in groups. The goal of the subject matter is to encourage the students to participate in an absolute manner (i.e. mentally, physically, emotionally) in the activities included in it. It also aims in personal development through theatrical activities, in the development of group cohesiveness and trust in it, in cooperation, in physical self-awareness, sensibility and perception, in the cultivation of spontaneity, empathy and reciprocal acceptance, and finally in overcoming obstacles stemming from cultural and social class differences. Each lesson of the course has an experiential nature. The course is divided in the following units: 1. Full multimodal participation (mental, physical, emotional) 2. Group coherence and trust 3. Cooperation 4. Physical self-awareness, sensibility, and perception 5. Release of physical and emotional expression 6. Spontaneity 7. Empathy and reciprocal acceptance 8. Discussion regarding the effects of the activities on the participants
