ESSENCE OF THEATER: (Paul Stebbings)

* Engage through rhythm, pace and teamwork
* Explore the stylisation of dialogue and creation of character through stylised improvisation, listening and responding
* Discover theatre that moves beyond television-inspired-realism.
* Challenge your perceptions of what is the essence of theatre.
* Work together as a group to create ensemble theatre and learn techniques

We encourage the group to work together and see that technique is something that can be learned, and, in our opinion, is more important than the lazy word “talent”.

Theatre is a social art that arose out of play. It should not be about parading ego but about working together to tell a story.

Theatre is not imitation it is imagination. This was the root of British theatre and we can learn from Shakespeare that the imagination is more powerful than any set or special effect.

The New Theatre (TNT) Britain was founded in 1980 in Britain and since has established itself as one of the most popular international touring theatre companies in the world. Since 1993 the company has been in collaboration with the American Drama Group Europe.

Theater in the Rough was founded in 2010 and is dedicated to bringing quality, affordable, theatrical experiences to the Jerusalem audience.
