THEATER AND FILM COURSE FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

This fall, the cultural and artistic association Slovenian National Theater Kranj is opening its doors for theater and film education for people with special needs: blind, visually impaired, deaf, hard of hearing, mute, disabled, etc.

It has been scientifically proven that this type of training improves cognitive as well as motor skills. It also has a positive effect on self-confidence, self-expression, compassion for others and helps maintain and build social contacts.

THE PROGRAM

is intended for people with special needs (blind, visually impaired, deaf, hard of hearing, mute, disabled...)

MEETINGS

they are once a week from the beginning of September to the end of June and last one hour.

PRICE

60 EUR per month per person

WORKSHOPS FOR PEOPLE WITH SPECIAL NEEDS

We will start each meeting with one of the relaxation, movement, voice, memory or improvisation exercises. We will continue with improvisations of scenes from a selected theater play, film script or advertising spots.

Then we will learn the text and perform the scenes on stage or in front of the camera. The premiere of the game or of the edited footage will take place in front of an audience consisting of companions, carers, friends and relatives.

At the end of the school year, participants receive a Certificate of successful completion of the workshop.

INSTRUCTOR Igor Korošec graduated in acting from the Russian Academy of Dramatic Arts (GITIS) in Moscow, after which he was employed in SLG Celje for a couple of years, and also played in MGL. Later, his journey took him to Los Angeles, where he continued his acting career in theater plays, television series ('Alias', 'Chuck', 'Rizzoli & Isles', 'Grimm'), films ('Good German' directed by Stevna Soderbergh, 'Charlie Wilson's War' directed by Mike Nichols), commercials, radio plays, etc. He has also taught acting at various elementary and high schools throughout Los Angeles, as well as at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). Igor's acting portfolio is available at https://igorkorosec-com.webnode.com/discography/.

Igor Korošec is the only Slovenian who completed a 12-week intensive course for an artist educator at the American National Center for Creative Aging. On this course, Igor became thoroughly familiar with the problems of aging and with scientifically proven creative methods that improve the overall well-being of elderly and disabled people and, in large cases, also stop various cognitive or motor diseases. This is precisely the knowledge that Igor wants to share with people in nursing homes.
