Wandering Aesthetics Educational Philosophy:
Theatre is play. Children constantly use their imaginations to create something out of nothing - a concept adults should embrace. Their lives are ones of theatricality and experimentation, discovering their world and themselves through play.
Using a play-based approach, Wandering Aesthetics works with students of all ages to develop their voices, their bodies and their imaginations in order to become more dynamic performers. Exercises are tailored toward each unique group of students, with the goal of creating a strong bond between participants while exposing them to an alternative form of theatre.
Storytellers at heart, Wandering Aesthetics’ classes are often framed as research into the art of theatre as storytelling. Students learn to craft their own stories as they dive deep into the tales of time.
