Course description

Remote theatre is a new and exciting genre of theatre which is being performed by young learners of English to audiences around the world in schools, at conferences and at theatres through Zoom – a simple and free video conferencing tool. This six day course for language teachers will equip teachers with the skills and knowledge to conduct remote theatre activities with the students they teach in their own contexts.

It will focus on key remote theatre skills such as online storytelling, improvisation activities, and creating and performing a script. At the same time it will explore how these activities can provide a motivating and learning rich route into second language development.  The course will end with a performance of what has been worked on to a remote audience of learners of English somewhere in the world. No previous experience of drama or acting is required in order to take part in the course.

All course participants will receive a free copy of the newly published, ‘Remote Theatre Handbook’ by Nick Bilbrough with contributions by Jeremy Harmer, David Crystal, Alan Maley and many others.
