ISTA announces Dar Es Salaam High School Festival 30th November - 2nd December 2012
The International Schools Theatre Association (ISTA) is an arts organization committed to providing high quality experiences that develop creative learning and internationalism through theatre. For the last forty years our lively yearly programme provides learning experiences and resources for young people, teachers and artists.
ISTA would like to announce the Dar Es Salaam High School Festival, Tanzania from 30th November to 2nd December 2012.
ISTA festivals offer three-day international theatre experiences including workshops, ensembles and result in a final performance. They allow young people the opportunity to work together to grow in ability and confidence and discover new friends, places and cultures during the process.
The starting point of the Dar Es Salaam High School festival is Survival. How do we survive physically, mentally, at sea, on land, or even at school? How do stories survive?
Students will work together in ensemble exploring the starting point and learning and building confidence through collaborating. There is also the opportunity for students interested in theatre tech to focus on tech during the festival.
At the festival, participants will also have a chance of visiting Bongoyo Island, a marine reserve with a wooded area, a sandy beach and coral reef for snorkelling.
