Learning outcomes

Playing theatre means to overtake a new role, to disover oneself new and get another person. During this process students can reflect and develop important competences like individual appearance, the impact of language, gesture, mimic and body language. Observation of theirself and others leads to a deeper understanding of all these expressions.
