Le Petit Studio is a workshop space for dramatic readings by and for children and adolescents, with optional participation by adults, including teachers, parents, and grandparents! It promotes a shared space where young people can experience and create around books, words, and sounds. A place to dramatize and recreate a universe that emanates from writers from every part of the globe (including from actual participants)? Perfect for schools, church groups, community centers, nonprofit organizations — anywhere you want children to experience the fun of drama! Imagine that in two hours that a group of young people (workshop maximum of 20) can recreate an entire world on stage. Imagine that they take responsibility for making artistic decisions to realize their vision and make their own story come alive. The workshop culminates with a performance: the costume group dresses their characters, who now read their individual parts, with the sound effects group adding the appropriate accompaniment. There is much laughter and enthusiastic participation as the young people experience the joy of creating together. Toto has led more than 100 "Le Petit Studio" workshops for schools, nonprofit organizations and governments. This program will also provide a space for sharing experiences among youth and adults about their communities, through introduction to theater, writing workshops, and thinker space. This is for all to explore new ideas and thoughts relating to such concepts as personal and societal visions, as well as change.
