【工作坊簡述】
在教育劇場和參與式劇場的領域中,其中一個最具挑戰性的工作是如何做好引導者(Facilitator)的角色。引導者同時擔任老師、共學者、帶領者、編劇等角色,如何善用戲劇中的藝術性、利用富戲劇性的經驗引導參加者為相關經驗創造意義,繼而有技巧地引導參加者經驗深層次的學習及反思?

Chris Cooper將教育劇場引導者的工作比喻為一道橋,他認為引導者的工作主要是幫助參加者連接兩個世界之間的互動﹕一個是戲劇故事中想像的世界;另一個是現實的世界。引導者如何善用想像與現實之間的交錯互動,建構有深度和有意義的學習和探索經驗?TEFO 很高興再次邀請到英國應用劇場大師Chris Cooper來香港進行三天的工作坊,帶領大家探討成為一道「橋」的藝術性和引導技巧。

【Workshop Description】
The role of the facilitator and the art of facilitation is one of the most challenging and demanding in the field of participatory educational theatre and drama. The facilitator acts like a bridge between two worlds: the world of the fiction and the world of ourselves and is critical to the movement between the two. The facilitator is teacher, co-learner, guide and playwright to dramatic experience in order to enable participants to make meaning. This praxis based three day workshop will explore the art of bridging and moving between these two worlds.

On Day One, Cooper will lead the participants through a participatory drama.

Day Two and Day Three will deconstruct the experience in order to explore the role of the facilitator and how she can enable experiential deep learning through the art form of drama from both a pedagogical and aesthetic point perspective. The workshop will explore teacher as facilitator, teacher-in-role, signing (Heathcote’s Signs and Portents) and slowing time down using appropriate theatre devices and conventions, and the use of objects to change perception and enhance new ways of seeing. There will also be a focus during these two days on the importance of the Site and the Centre, questioning, and focussing the layers of meaning.

This workshop is aimed towards serving:

  • Applied Theatre/Drama Education Practitioners
  • Experiential/Immersive Theatre-makers
  • School teachers/social workers that use dramatic techniques in their work

【Biography: Chris Cooper】
Cooper has worked in TIE and educational theatre and drama since 1988 as an actor, director and playwright. He was the Artistic Director of the internationally acclaimed Big Brum Theatre in Education Company for 17 years (1999-2015) where he directed 38 new TIE programmes and many special projects over the years; including 9 World Premiere productions of new plays by the great British playwright Edward Bond commissioned by the Company.

Since 2009 Cooper has been working with Drama Rainbow, Beijing. The work with Drama Rainbow includes the training of teachers in drama education and the development of theatre education. He has also created picture books illustrated by Ceri Townsend as part of a Creative Curriculum the Company offers for children aged 3-8 years old in kindergartens and arts centres. He is now a frequent visitor to mainland China working extensively in the field of drama and theatre education in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Nanjing and other first and second tier cities. In 2018 he ran a series of workshops for the first time in Hong Kong. This year he has extended his collaboration into a developing partnership with TEFO. The result is a three day workshop and participation in TEFO’s symposium and a new site-specific TiE programme, Splintered, in the Hong Red Cross Warzone 2.0 Education centre.

In January 2017, he also became a founder member and the International Director of Jian Xue (See & Learn), which is a research and development NGO in the field of educational drama and theatre with a specific interest in theatre-in-education and international projects, particularly those connecting the Chinese speaking world.

In 2008 Cooper set up Accident Time Productions which works mostly in Europe on theatre productions and projects, teaching, training, lecturing and presenting workshops, including ongoing long-term collaborations in Hungary, Slovenia, Malta, Greece, Norway and Ireland. He has written extensively on the theory and practice of educational theatre and drama in a variety of books, journals, and other publications.

Since 1996, Cooper has been the author of 40 plays. Most recently, Splintered, for TEFO/Red Cross Hong Kong, The Silence, for Birmingham’s The_ GAP Arts, about the marginalisation of the Irish and Muslim communities in the city, new TiE adaptations of the traditional fairy tale of Jack & the Beanstalk for Drama Rainbow and of R L Stevenson’s great novella, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, for Big Brum. His adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth for Drama Rainbow’s Youth Theatre, and his new play Minotaur, for Big Brum, based on the Greek myth, will both go into rehearsal in September 2019.
