Playwriting & Immersive Theater

 

Theater encompasses many skills that enhance and speed language and literacy development. From the writing of plays, creating character traits, physicalizing those traits, and performing a student-written complete work, theater can impact learning via multiple approaches. Through PiP's Playwriting- and performance-based Immersive Theater residency, students explore folktales, legends, history and stories of various cultures or regions and adapt and perform their own versions of these works.

 

Recent residencies have focused on the Tales of Panchatantra of Southeast Asia, African folktales, Native American folktales, Egyptian folktales, Greek and Roman mythology and others. Using a variety of performance techniques, enhanced by incorporating puppetry or visual art extensions, students are involved in a comprehensive immersion in the elements of theater. For both elementary and middle school populations, this collaborative residency can be tailored to enhance key skills for English Language Learners and Special Education populations.
