Web of Performance: Introducing Performance Studies into the Secondary Theatre Classroom

The workshop introduces seven key concepts from the field of Performance Studies: Performance as  a form of Play, Ritual, Healing, Education, Power, Identity and Everyday Life. Participants will have the opportunity to explore how these concepts can be drawn on and applied to their teaching practice. As well, the session will introduce a new and free e-book resource, Web of Performance: An Ensemble Workbook, published by the University of Victoria. Broadening and deepening our understanding of performance has the potential to broaden and deepen our work with students.
