Annlin Youth Theatre live up to the Physical Theatre Challenge

Every year we like to expose our Youth Theatre  (teenagers 13-18) to different forms of theatre. This year we are challenging them with a Physical theatre piece. Physical Theatre is a genre of theatrical performance that pursues storytelling through primarily physical means. 
Our enthusiastic and talented performers are really enjoying this form of drama and discovering how important the body is to convey an idea or meaning.

Our Annlin Youth theatre meet every Wednesday from 5-6 pm in Annlin at Victory Life Church. For more details please visit or website or call Juliet 0829091630.

Physical and Educational theatre form part of our dynamic curriculum

Our Youth Theatre classes for ages 13-18 are busy working on an exciting physical and educational theatre piece that they will be performing at our end of year show! This particular piece was written by our Cape Town principal and it deals with all forms of discrimination - not only found in South Africa but worldwide!

The students are loving the freedom of coming up with their own ideas and although we have only just started we have seen some amazing things from our awesome youth theatre groups!
