Pavement Playhouse: Acting and Site-Specific Theatre, Grades 7-10

Holiday course

Make all the world your stage. For centuries artists have found ways to turn public areas into a performance space. Now it’s your turn to take your performance skills to the people. Work with a team of young artists and a NIDA tutor to create an original site-specific, street theatre performance then showcase your work at the NIDA Mid-Summer event.

Course components

  • Creative Voice: Assume a variety of roles in a creative development process to generate new ideas for a live presentation.
  • Collaboration: Work with a group to develop a new concept into a short live presentation.
  • Contemporary practice: Explore site specific and ‘street theatre’ performance styles. Incorporate these techniques into a devised performance.
  • Stage Craft: Consider the logistics of public performance from an artistic and practical perspective.
