This year's NWTC youth theatre has been busy learning theatre skills from acting (physicality and movement) and use of media (selection and use of sound, projection and light) through to taking responsibility for ensemble work (each group has had to organise itself and decide how best to tell their story). They now invite you to see their interpretation of "Five fantastic tales" :

Soaked in Seaweed (Canada)
A ship's crew and its passenger have shipwrecked on an uncharted island. Here they discover human weaknesses and strengths in the midst of the tragedy.
 
The Secret Garden (North America)
A magical discovery of life through a friendship and exploration of a special garden.
 
The Origin of Water  (Australia)
A dream time story about the origin of water before the existence of humans.
 
The two Brothers  (South Africa)
Two brothers who grew up together, hunting in the solitary fields of South 
Africa, until one day… when one of them betrayed the other…
 
Jack and the Beanstalk (England)
A poor boy and his mother, hopeless and abandoned, they discover a new world thanks to some magic beans which will transform their lives.
The skills developed this year with Natalia Sanchez include:
1. Artistic skills
-improvisation
-body awareness (body parts, fluency of movements, rhythm)
-theatrical movements (gesture and corporal expression) 
-the use of the stage-space (individual and group)
-production (group work)
-creativity (group work)
-organisation (group work)
-text adaptation from narrative to dramatic text  (group work)
2.Social skills
-self confidence 
-self awareness
-team building
