Atelier Bleu M'ajjjiiik creates and presents the theater awareness in primary
schools since 1986. The company has designed interactive methods to encourage
students desire to improve their social skills.
Atelier Bleu M'ajjjiiik has developed workshops that are based on an educational and artistic approach.
These workshops are adapted for the age of the students and the needs of teachers and schools. They are offered in one or more meetings.
There are two versions of the workshop on theatrical play and performance:
KINDERGARTEN, GRADES 1 and 2
The students are led to perform exercises of voice, projection of the voice, movements, interpretation and self-consciousness. They will learn to recognize facial expressions and gestural symbolism.
- Discover the existence of different characters
- Discovery of feelings and movements
- Games of concentration and imitation
- Walk like ...
- Move like ...
- Create different voices
- and much more !
This theater workshop raises awareness on these elements:
- body language
(attitudes, postures, movements, facial expressions, etc.);
- voice (tone, strength, projection,, etc.);
- words (choice of words, meaning of words according to tone of voice, articulation, etc.);
- space (movement, amplitude of gestures, agility, sharing space, inhabiting space, etc.);
- behavior (clarity in our gestures and our words, authenticity, verbal and nonverbal communication, etc.).
We also approach the presence on stage and sharpen
the sense of observation. All these aspects of theatrical interpretation are
connected and develop the capacity to put oneself in the skin of others in order
to better understand the world around us.
Note: Two workshops can be run at the same time by two facilitators for two different groups.
