#voixencrées is a French translation of Workshop West Playwrights' Theatre's #writesofpassage program. It is an opportunity for your junior/senior high school students to write an original play alongside professional playwrights and actors. With our team of artist-educators, your students participate in all the steps of writing a play, from developing the basic premise all the way through to the on-stage presentation of a few excerpts of the play, read and performed by two professional actors.
Through #voixencrées, your students will:
develop new skills in writing and communication
find their voice within a group
work with professional theatre artists
become conscious of multiple identities within our pluralist society
explore critical thought and express linguistic and cultural diversity
