In our third Theatre in Education video, we explore Victor Frankenstein's workroom and the moment his Creation comes to life
We know that education is a huge challenge for many people at the moment. As the lockdown continues, we’re working hard to find ways of connecting with teachers, parents and educators remotely, with a new video series showing you how to incorporate some of our world-renowned Theatre in Education practices into learning at home or at school.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing a series of educational videos using Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein as a basis for discussion. This week’s session, “The Creation Lives“, explores Victor’s workroom and the moment his Creation is brought to life.
Pioneered by the Belgrade Theatre in 1965, Theatre in Education quickly snowballed into an international movement. It’s a piece of our heritage that we’re extremely proud of, but sadly, the ongoing pandemic has put theatres under a huge financial strain, losing most of their income overnight when the lockdown was announced – which places vital community services like our Theatre in Education work at risk.
