Engaging the minds of young drivers & road users
Theatre in Education (TIE) has a constantly evolving definition, as new strategies and objectives for using theatre as an educational tool emerge.
Most define TIE as a general term that includes all the interactive theatre practices that help aid the educational process. Some of these processes include developing original scripts, using the performance of a play as a springboard for interacting with an audience and discussing important or sensitive topics or themes in a safe and supported environment.
We try wherever possible to link our theatre in education performances to any current road safety campaigns or issues. Recent performances have included ‘Speak Up’ and ‘Licence to Kill’ for Key stage 5, getting important young car occupant messages across with a thought provoking and serious edge.
‘Streetwise’ for year 7 introducing issues around younger students making their first solo journeys to new secondary schools.
