Drama - based at Ocker Hill
The aim of drama sessions is to create and provide theatre experiences for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism.
We work closely with certified theatre teachers who are trained to work with adults that have disabilities. Individuals are actively supported in accordance to their needs to express their creativity and engage in group workshops. In these sessions, we play games and do drama exercises that aim to improve focus, communication skills, trust, improvisation, character work, acting, dancing, and singing. Through performance and art, we create a platform for participants to build self-confidence, independence, and social interaction. In drama sessions participants learn and rehearse new group and solo acts to then perform at various events throughout the year.
Drama sessions keep participants active and learning/retaining skills and social experiences.
Drama empowers participants to explore and develop their individual creative skills by engaging, having fun, and interacting with others.
