ETC: Educational Theatre Collaborative


Educational Theatre Workshops are taught by different local experts and ETC members focusing on specific ideas, skills and techniques in theatre and/or education.


Claudia Wier presented "A Scenic Interpretive Workshop for the Youth Opera 'Brundibár'." This workshop was based directly on the work Claudia did in Berlin, Germany at the National Opera. She worked as a workshop leader and earned certification at the Institute for the Scenic Interpretation of Music and Theatre. The method is based in the theoretical and practical techniques of Berthod Brecht and Augusto Boal. She created the workshop concept for Brundibár based on that method.
