Jessica talks about her Documentary Theatre camp this past summer
Documentary Theatre: Drama Meets Journalism
Ages 12 - 15
Sundays 1:00 - 2:30 E.S.T. *
Fee: $170 + HST
Theatre introduces us to fantastical worlds and spectacular stories from the depths of our imaginations. But creating theatre about what’s happening right now in the world can be just as interesting. Documentary theatre responds to newsworthy events, hot topics, and controversial debates that can’t be ignored. Using journalistic tactics such as investigative research and interviewing, participants will source material to create an original documentary theatre script on a topic about which they are passionate. Working with real people and real stories, they’ll explore the complicated, messy, and beautiful truths behind the world’s drama.
