Chôros Workshops intend to raise awareness upon its participants of theatre as a mean of expression and discussion about societal issues. The workshops explore possibilities of making theatre together, considering participants’ own personality, cultural identity and artistic practices as a creative asset.
The pedagogy is founded on a physical approach of theatre (not text-based), calling on each individuals’ personalities and special features (language, artistic capacities, physical presence) as a material for common creation. This methodology associates universal issues and each individual’s participation in a group: by making theatre, the common reflexion helps each one in outlooking at the world around and find a better place in it.
