ACTivate Residencies reinforce classroom learning through the creation of an original performance inspired by neighborhood interviews, myths, legends, or folktales that reflect the background and interests of school communities. CCT’s highly trained teaching artists work closely with students and teachers on a custom curriculum integrating writing, directing, performance, design, and collaborative story development with cross-disciplinary applications. Students pull from their own experiences to re-imagine existing stories and embody powerful narratives. We tailor this approach for each partnering school, classroom, teacher, and community. Residencies challenge students to think (learn), feel (empathize), and activate (do) with an emphasis on empowerment and leadership.
ACTivate Residencies reinforce your classroom’s existing curriculum with theatre-based instruction. We believe in the power of S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) and seek to inspire curiosity in these respective fields through art.
