TRAIN THEATER - 2nd edition

Training Course

18-24 March 2023 | Alpignano, Torino, Italy

"TRAIN THEATER - 2nd edition" is a 5 days residential training course;it will involve 26 participants who are interested in using theater as a non formal method for intercultural learning.

The Training course TRAIN THEATER - 2nd edition will be set as the previous training course in the frame of Erasmus Plus (KA1 - Staff mobility) in collaboration with partners from the South Mediterranean area. 

In October 2019, the organization Giosef Torino hosted the first edition of this Training Course to critically reflect about the use of theater techniques in non formal education. The need behind the implementation of this training was to enhance awareness and knowledge toward the use of theater in education, especially in intercultural settings and with groups who might have people with very different (sometimes critical) life experiences : on the one hand by giving a deeper comprehension of the pedagogical system behind the use of theater in education, on the other hand by providing to the participants a practical experience, throughout a number of theater activities with different technics, which they tried out themselves, deeply understood and discussed, before to use it in their own projects.  

After the deep and engaging experience, following the feedback of the participants and organizations involved, Giosef Torino decided to create a follow up experience that focuses more on use of theater pedagogy in intercultural learning, deepening the knowledge on theater activities, to better understand how to modify or even create their own, targeting specific aims; in this training we will add a focus on intercultural conflict management and power dynamics understanding, a key problematic emerged in different experiences when highly emotional topic have been addressed using theater, an easily emotionally charged activity in itself.

The training course is designed as a 5 days residential experience and it will involve 26 youth workers, facilitators, trainers, educators, teachers who are interested in using theater as a method for their work, especially in very diverse group which call for a high level of flexibility, ability to deal with ambiguity and capacity to welcome different definitions of identity. 

The specific objective are:

  • to provide a wide set of competences in the frame of theater pedagogy, framed and understood as an effective methodology in different context and group;
  • to clarify differentiations and similarities between theater pedagogy and non formal education;
  • to open a discussion and problematize the use of theater in education, addressing pitfalls and benefits, with a specific attention to intercultural groups,
  • to provide a broad set of direct experiences in the theater frame, perfect example of the holistic learning experience, magnifier and amplifier of all competences required by a trainer;
  • to prove through different engaging activities a self awareness of group dynamic, active listening, emotion management;
  • to deepen comprehension of the concept of “safe space for learning process”; 
  • to analyze of the different conduction style, capacity of giving and receiving feedbacks, leading debriefing and self-valuation;
  • to understand the cultural ambiguity and liquid concept of identity, with an intersectional approach.
