March Break Camp with Project: Humanity

  • Mar 11 - Mar 15, 2019
  • Details
    Project: Humanity and Crow’s Theatre are offering a March Break Camp for high school students like no other!

     

    Over the past 30 years, Verbatim Theatre (or Documentary Theatre) has become a more and more popular way of making plans from real- life stories. Since 2008, Project: Humanity has been a leading developer of these ‘live documentaries’ in Toronto with highly acclaimed shows like The Middle Place and Freedom Singer.
     
    A mashup of drama and journalism, Verbatim theatre activates the imagination and the conscience at once. It represents the best of artivism. It also questions the nature of ‘realness’ in exciting ways, taking ‘based on a true story’ to a whole new level.
     
    Over a 5 day program, participants will get to know Project: Humanity’s Verbatim Theatre techniques and will take them to the streets to create their own ‘live documentaries’ about issues that matter to them.
     
    This is not just a camp for actors and/ or playwrights; Project: Humanity invites any students who are interested in the arts and social change, in politics and debate- or even reality TV.
     
    The camp runs 9:00am-4:00pm Monday March 11- Friday March 15th, 2019 and is designed for students in Grades 9-12.
     
    The fee includes admission to a matinee performance of Project: Humanity’s new show, Towards Youth, on Wednesday March 13, 2019.
