THEATER AND FILM COURSE FOR YOUNG ADULTS

Are you ready to improve your confidence, self-expression, compassion, ensemble work and academic success?

The cultural and artistic association of the Slovenian National Theater of Kranj is opening its doors this autumn for theater and film education of young people.

This type of education is scientifically proven to improve your:

SELF CONFIDENCE

Performing arts workshops allow you to step out of your comfort zone. When you let go of your inhibitions and expectations of what is "right" or "wrong," you relax and let your inner joy shine, simply "you." The self-confidence that grows with each performance is transferred to all corners of your life, whether at school, at social gatherings or future job interviews.

SELF EXPRESSION

Some people find it harder to express their feelings in life. That is why performing arts workshops offer a healthy and controlled environment in which participants explore and channel their emotions through narrative, music and movement. When you learn to express yourself through art, you learn to express yourself creatively and loudly in other situations as well.

COMPASSION

Seeing the world through the eyes of someone who doesn't look like you on the surface encourages kindness, thoughtfulness, and non-judgment of others. This allows you to learn to respect, understand and empathize with other people, especially when portraying a character that is dramatically different from yourself. Getting to know people from different communities, countries and cultures through art allows you to become an informed global citizen.

ENSEMBLE WORK

Ensemble work teaches workshop participants that each person has unique talents to bring to the table, and that combining diverse perspectives creates mutual success that is powerful and fosters creative growth.

ACADEMIC SUCCESS

Various studies have shown that a performing arts curriculum has incredibly positive effects on academic performance. A 2019 article in the scientific journal Trends in Neuroscience and Education states that arts-related education increased information acquisition and general understanding of subjects in school. Memorizing a text in theater or film uses the same reading comprehension skills we use in school. In addition, the participants of the performing arts workshops use their knowledge of the social sciences as well as the natural sciences in their creation of the role. You learn persistence, creative problem solving, and the ability to focus—all great skills that will lead to success in regular classes. The skills you acquire through performing arts training will shape you into a superstar on life's stage.

WHAT WILL WE DO?

At the workshops, we will deal with excerpts from famous Hollywood films and sequels in the original or in Slovenian; we will analyze them and record them in a suitable location. We will also touch on the business side of Hollywood showbiz.

At the end of the course, the participants will receive recordings of their scenes, which they can use to promote themselves as actors or actresses.

Certificates for successful completion of the course are awarded at the end of each school year.
