Pulse is a project for eight aspiring theatre-makers and facilitators to develop their original performance of Shajarat Al Durr into a fully realized show, which will tour to camps, schools and local theatre festivals, alongside a post-show workshop for children.
The project’s artistic focus is on devising original theatre collaboratively as an ensemble. The group will also learn how to facilitate theatre processes for other communities, particularly children. Part of the artistic goal is showing the group how to design a workshop series so that the process of theatre making is meaningfully linked to the final product, in a process that empowers participants (e.g. children) as producers, writers and creators.
Seenaryo believes that the group has the potential to continue as a theatre ensemble after the project, as well as to work with children independently in their own communities.
