Theatre enables the development and understanding of the self as well as the exploration of self in relation to others. It helps the development of critical empathy for fellow humans and towards the natural, physical and social worlds.
Through theatre/street-plays students are given opportunity to create their own dramas and attend plays presented by others also bringing about social awareness through street-plays. Through this medium of learning, students are transported to worlds past, present, and future — the ultimate in “virtual reality.”
“Theatre not only includes acting, it also involves dance, painting, costume designing, stage designing, an understanding of lighting and other things.” At The Millennium School drama fulfils student’s psychological needs of free expression and imagination, builds their characters, and finally through stories leads them to perform for an audience.
