Visual Theatre

Artist: Quest Visual Theatre

Type: Residencies


Students are introduced to the power of visual theatre in this engaging visual theatre residency. Students learn visual theatre techniques such as movement, focus, size and shape to express themselves and create short visual theatre pieces. Through the use of visual theatre, students enhance their 21st Century Skills. Quest artists work with teachers to apply the residency activities to curricular goals and statewide standards. The residency culminates in a brief student performance.
