„There’s madness in this method. Though this be madness, yet there’s method in it” (Drama Way). That quote describes my attitude towards education - connecting with the not obvious in our society, yet the most natural elements of our existance and learning – the body, movement, voice, role playing and drama.
I wish that everyone could recognise, live and express their feelings and needs. Being aware of the diversity within us makes it so much easier to appreciate the diversity between us.
