Imagine, improvise and impersonate
if you have had enough monotonousness and dreariness.
We somehow need to release the stress out, but taking it out on other people or yourself is not a health habit.
You can RE interpret-explore-experience your thoughts, emotions and habits with creative drama!
What the fun is creative drama?
Creative drama is a group activity that allows participants to (re)explore, (re)experience, and (re)express their emotions, thoughts, or chosen situations using theater techniques.
Creative drama provides a safe and enjoyable space for practicing social skills, self-discovery, and opening doors to new possibilities in life without social, mental, or moral pressures. It is a game that emerges through improvisation based on a pre-determined theme. There is no end product to be presented because both the audience and the performers are participants. No acting skills are required.
By sharing experiences with other participants in creative drama, one can get an idea of how a situation or action would feel even before the actual experience. Creative drama offers opportunities for reanalyzing relationships with others and oneself through role-playing and exploring new ways of thinking, leading to increased awareness.
Some of the benefits of creative drama include:
Bringing playfulness and joy to boredom
Developing social and performance skills (interviews, public speaking, stage performances, etc.)
Connecting with emotions and overcoming emotional detachment
What makes creative drama special?
Creativity is one of the most important powers of humanity, it's incredible! Imagining something and experiencing the imagined reality as real makes it possible to enjoy, experience and improve.
If you look at children, playing is our human nature. Exploring identities, turning into something else through role-playing, impersonating, taking a step back from the self and coming one step closer to it. Experiencing the emotions without judgement, expressing the ideas, listening to others and being listened by others... Sounds very exciting.
If you want to give it a try, you're welcome to join our weekly meetings or workshops!
What to expect?
Have we mentioned it's not real? There's no winning or losing, no right or wrong way of playing!
You have a non-judgemental space to explore your skills and practice without the pressures of real life.
During the plays safety instructions are provided by the playmakers during the activities.
Most importantly, it's just a play! Take things lightly, release your emotions, be silly and have fun!
Everything is based on an imagined reality, no skills needed. You're completely free!
Creative drama provides an imagined reality, which can open doors to new possibilities!

"When I first attended the workshop, my goal was to learn more about improvisation and play, but we got much more than I expected.
Apart from sound, breath and character studies, I think it is very useful for my personal development. "

"We had a great drama workshop with Selin. When we switched to online education because of the pandemic, we all had the same thing on my mind? How do we improvise?
Everything happened in a wonderful way with the courage he gave us. This workshop has contributed a lot to both my discovery of my inner self and the drama. "
