THEATRE IN EDUCATION

THEATRE IN EDUCATION

Civic Ensemble uses theatre & drama tools to explore questions and possibilities in our schools. We collaborate with students, teachers, staff, and administrators to imagine, create, problem-solve, and build capacity.

In my time at the school, the one thing that has changed hearts and minds around race was your work.

-Principal in the Ithaca City School District

Our current Theatre in Education programming - Our Stories, Our Solutions (OSOS)  - is a multi-year partnership with the Ithaca City School District and SUNY Cortland as they both seek to address issues of racism and bias in their classrooms and school communities. Using a process of story circles, devised playmaking, and facilitated workshops, OSOS gives teachers an opportunity to practice for real life - trying on solutions and learning from and with their peers.

Our Theatre in Education Program also includes “1-off” workshops at educational sites like the Cornell Dyson School and our local elementary schools. If you are interested in having Civic Ensemble artists work with you school or classroom,  email info@civicensemble.org
