“Our Stories On Stage” is a five day theatrical workshop with new instructor Marta Jasinska, a specialist in drama and art therapy, originally from Poland. She will be assisted by members of Aloha Teen Theatre. The workshop, conducted at the Aloha Theatre in Kainaliu, is for students from 8 through 12 years old, and will be held from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Monday, July 20 through Friday, July 24.
Participants will have a chance to experience the entire process of preparing a theatrical performance, including creating the script, rehearsing it, and performing it for an audience. The script will be inspired by the Big Island, and will include myths, legends, historical facts, and participants’ memories and experiences. Students will be asked to research and collect stories by interviewing their parents, grandparents, friends, and neighbors. Work on these memory stories will be done in small groups, resulting in scenes to be incorporated in the play. To facilitate this, students will be working with sound recorders, with which they may also capture characteristic ambient sounds of the island for possible use as part of the sensory landscape of the show. In addition, each participant will assist with set, costume, and prop construction, which will include masks and puppets.
Tuition is $150 per student, with family discounts available. Tuition covers all materials needed for the workshop and a daily afternoon snack. Students will need to bring a lunch, dress appropriately for movement, and wear closed shoes.
