Les Arts Scéniques Junior
Les Arts Scéniques Junior is our company for English speaking children and teens ages 11 – 15 who have a keen interest in theater and are willing to train and work on a professional level. The weekly practice session last 90 minutes and features improvisational skills, rehearsal drill, monologues and dialogues, and principles of movement for the stage space. The company trains regularly between September and June. Besides training the children will create, i.e. write and rehearse a play and perform it in May/June. This production aims to give the children a first-hand experience of theater.
Corona forced us mid-March to switch from our rehearsal space to Zoom online-rehearsals and turn our almost finished brand new stage play into a movie. If all goes well with cutting and editing we will release it before the summer school vacation. We’re excited about this new format and look forward to showing our newest work.
Next year we plan to go back to perform in a theater again – so corona will… Sign up for our newsletter and stay posted about our movie release and next year’s project.
