Dear teachers and Dramafest community,
We want to invite you to participate in the 75th edition of the DramaFest!
It won’t be a surprise to hear that this year will be different. That said, we firmly believe that drama helps build empathy and a sense of togetherness and this is something we really need to share and celebrate!
In lieu of our traditional gatherings, the NTS team is creating an online platform, The DramaFest Salon, to ensure that you experience a real celebration in a free and safe environment.
Every school will be able to present a work uploaded in categories that they see fit. In the spirit of building a sense of togetherness, there will be no district or regional events, only one online showcase, The DramaFest Salon, in June. That said, we are is still maintaining the reciprocal communication flow with Regional to District to participating schools.
Please refer to the email communication to view the core parameters for this platform. Like most of you, we remain flexible and are open to adapt, so these parameters will be refined and detailed in the following months. All of this is new, and we will grow into this virtual land of theatre-making together.
We hope to foster process-oriented approaches and welcome works in progress, at a starting point or even exercises. We don’t expect polished works but aim to serve the core values of the DramaFest. Please refer to the monthly Newsletter for updates and know that we are in contact with reps and coordinators.
Exciting times are ahead!
Your NTS team
