Course Description

The theatre is one of the ultimate models of the collaborative process, however most enterprises in the 21st century requires some level of collaboration whether in the classroom or workplace. This course will be a laboratory examining the dynamics of collaboration – how it works, when it works, when it doesn't work – through the lens of theatre and the theatrical formats of improvisation, games and composition. Using theatrical models students will dissect group dynamics and critically examine social and political structures through weekly collaborative laboratories. Students will build practical skills in communication, cooperation, critical thinking and observation, while examining the nature of collaboration and the challenges faced in different aspects of teamwork. Experience Feedback : "Prof Hanukai was really great in developing our knowledge and encouraging us to learn much more about different issues. He was really passionate during class and he really just gave us another insight to the way theater can be a very good tool to transform thinking and acting in the real world" "Excellent teacher, never thought that an art workshop could be as entertaining and didactic. Very glad about this course."
