AlternativeLearning

new ways of understanding ourselves

Our take on Learning is not, as you might imagine, about the act of educating

people through imparting knowledge and training;

The Latin word 'educere' means 'to lead out', 'to draw out'',  'to bring from'. Each

of us has our own innate understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

However this understanding needs to be properly cared for, given scope to

develop. It needs first to be located, accessed, and then developed.

In AlternativeTheatre, we have one of the most powerful forms of Learning.

In AlternativeShakespeare, we have a Theatre that is incredibly potent.

AlternativeLearning uses these to better understand ourselves and the world around us; 

It does so through the power and universality of creating and telling stories.

Our AlternativeLearning Experience

Locating / Accessing / Developing the knowledge that is within us is multi-pronged.

Here are just some ways we've gone about doing that, in no particular order:

Asking questions, even when there are no apparent answers

Re-energising existing plays/books/poems/lyrics etc

Developing ourselves, by ourselves, through ourselves

Scraping off the outer crust of our literary heritage

Focusing on ourselves and the world around us

Not unreservedly accepting things we are told

Working together in a caring, sharing way

Theatre workshops and techniques

Reading & understanding Plays

Creating new Theatre

Creating new Stories
