Age Restriction

Target audience: Kindergarten and primary teachers


Professar is a project on the exercise of the right to publicly acknowledge something, the public use of speech, of practicing, following, dedicating yourself, but also about learning and teaching. We want to invite a group of professionals connected to education and pedagogy (kindergarten teachers, primary teachers, etc) in order to, and starting from their personal experience and the reflection about them, elaborate a creative and artistic process: from the writing to the creation of a play. This Laboratório de Escrita aims to create a play to be staged and performed at Teatro São Luiz in January 2020. The Laboratório will promote playwriting as a way of social essay creating words that should be spoken and specified according to different perspectives and applied to dramatic forms. To create the contents improvisation exercises will be used, like guided conversations based on specific situations, who will be recorded and later viewed so as to recognise the dramatic potential in them. Autobiographical aspects of the life of the participants will be crossed with historical and social aspects, using an approach connected with micro-history. These exercises aim to rehearse the opposites and the expression of ideas to promote playwright and will, in a later stage, be placed in service of different narrative ways and scenic dispositions.

Reduced sitting availability.
