Title
Beijing TaPS

TaPS goals
The TaPS experience engages young people with the philosophy of the DP Theatre course, its core components and the assessment tasks.
TaPS acts as a launchpad for students’ explorations of theatre within the context of the course; to further pursue once back in their own schools.
Working with DP Theatre students from different schools broadens perspectives, forges friendships and enhances all learning.

All participants will take part in two master classes (MCs) focusing on a specific aspect of Theatre.
MCs for this TaPS will be confirmed by January 2020.

Theatre
All participants will attend two professional theatre performances. The productions on offer at this TaPS will be confirmed by January 2020.
