From the early days of ancient Greece theatre, spectators flocked to hear and see the visions offered to them by the dramatic performers of tragedy, comedy and satyr. We have watched theatre change throughout time, and we have learned from Aristotle, Shakespeare, and Calderon de la Barca, how theatre can provoke discussion and be at the center of social thought.
Theatre is offered as part of the IB programme, promoting international-mindedness. Theatre offers scholars the opportunity to take risks, discovery through experimentation, and how to present ideas to others. Scholars gain life skills through this multifaceted course by building self-confidence, creativity and learning how to work collaboratively with other scholars as well as individually. Scholars are given the opportunity to engage in the creative process, transforming their ideas into their actions as they fill all aspects of theatre from creator to director to performer.
Theatre is an art form which allows scholars to research, create, prepare and reflect all while gaining a better understanding of themselves, their community and the world they live in.
