Please note this event is for local schools resident to Hong Kong only.

TaPS goals


ISTA TaPS PERSPECTIVES gives IB DP Theatre students the unique opportunity to work intensively with a series of 4 current and practising theatre professionals who each specialise in:

Collaboratively creating original theatre
Directing/Designing play texts
The performance of a particular theatre tradition or practice
Making work based on a particular theatre theorist

Working with IB theatre students from different schools, DP Theatre students will engage with each of these specialists as well as having a workshop with an IB DP Theatre specialist. The IB DP Theatre specialist will help the students to reflect on and consider how to apply their learning from TaPS to their own IB DP course. This gives students the opportunity to frame and make the most of each of their sessions with the professional artists.

Primarily working with specialist artists, usually sourced from cultural organisations where the TaPS will be held, offers us the opportunity to work with and contribute to the cultural ecology of the places where TAPS takes place.

ISTA TaPS Perspectives provides students with an understanding of how the syllabus areas of the IB DP Theatre course are applied to real-life, current theatre practice. It acts as a launchpad for students’ explorations of theatre 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.

Master classes
All teacher chaperones will take part in two master classes (MCs) focusing on a specific aspect of Theatre.

MCs for this TaPS Perspectives will be confirmed by May 2022.

Theatre
All participants will attend two professional theatre performances.

The productions on offer at this TaPS will be confirmed by June 2022.
