Yoga at the Kenora
International Theatre Camp
Born in July 2000 in Kenora ON, the
International Theatre Arts Camp is a
5 day intensive arts experience for
students 8-18 years old, created by the
International Summer Arts Collective. Students at
all levels participate in theatre
games, movement exercises, introductory
performance techniques, rhythm and music,
mime and stage combat, as well as
special activities at each experience
level. Participants develop a strong
sense of teamwork, self-confidence,
focus, co-ordination and creative
expression, and discover specialized
arts skills in a day camp setting with
instructors from all over the world.
Participants are grouped according to age: 8-10yrs, 11-13yrs, 13-15yrs, and 15+ yrs.
First-time participants, regardless of
their experience with the arts, start
in the beginner program, where special
activities include juggling, circus
sticks, introductory puppetry, mask
making and mask play.
Students who have completed the beginner
program develop further on these skills,
and participate in special activities
including hand puppets, commedia del'arte
mask making and character, ring juggling
Third time participants perfect their skills, continuing to build a repertoire of theatre games, physical skills and self confidence with an emphasis on creative storytelling. Groups work together towards a final presentation using all of their accumulated skills and techniques.
