Applied Theatre 101
Breaking out from the traditional theatre form of performance, applied theatre is stirring up a storm with its participatory approach in addressing social issues. Come and meet the youth who are aspiring applied theatre practitioners as they share how they have incorporated theatre into the community setting. The event will be facilitated by Aisha Shaik, Co-founder and Managing Director of Shoes Theatre.
Shoes Theatre is an applied theatre collective founded in 2014 by Aisha Shaik and Saleha Jubir. Shoes Theatre firmly believes in the power of drama to influence thought and create action. Focusing on the participatory nature of drama, its programmes explore local issues, in hopes to impact a positive change.
Aisha is Co-founder and Managing Director of Shoes Theatre. She is also a graduate of the Diploma in Applied Drama and Psychology course in Singapore Polytechnic.
