    Theatre as a form of activism and activism as a form of theatre

    This morning the Grade 9s embarked on a performing arts workshop and were led to investigate some of the most important issues in the world according to them, from a drama-based perspective. As Jean-Paul Sartre said, “every project, however individual, has a universal value”. Art that doesn’t just grab your attention, but sends a message, makes a statement and resonates.

    The aim of the workshop was to empower our students and to encourage them to understand that being an activist artist is to create art that is a form of political or social currency, actively addressing cultural power structures rather than representing them or simply describing them. It is more than just condemning an issue. It is about creating a platform that will support a narrative aimed at fighting the issue.
