The Magic of Theatre

Using stagecraft to explore everyday social problems: the infringement of children’s and women’s rights, domestic abuse, gender and national inequality. …

The Magic of Theatre works alongside a community-based organisation, Jash Kubat, to develop theatre skills and practice amongst disadvantaged group of young people, many of whom have had no experience in performing arts.

During the skills workshops, young people will study acting, public speaking, vocal skills, pantomime, gesture and dance. As well as learning social and emotional skills related to tolerance, friendship, equality, respect, and free speech.

Through theatre, the young people will explore issues of concern for them connected to children’s and women’s rights, domestic abuse, and gender inequality.

Policy outputs

“The Magic of Theatre” focuses on performance pedagogy and artistic creation. Using theatre as a tool for learning and contributing to the values of a democratic society, the children expressed their issues related to the environment, gender inequality, abandoned children, migration issues, etc. By raising relevant youth issues in society through performing arts and involving local communities and parents in the process of the project, The Magic of Theatre aims to draw the attention of policy makers to these issues and aspire for a change.
