Unrehearsed Futures

Unrehearsed Futures is a series of public conversations between heads of drama schools and leading performance trainers from across the globe to discuss and address the new realities of teaching drama.

Through Unrehearsed Futures, we will look at pedagogical approaches to teaching in the absence of presence, the benefits and challenges of alternative technologies, formats and mediums as well as planning long-term learning journeys against uncertain future conditions.

Unrehearsed Futures was conceptualized by Drama School Mumbai.

Every Thursday, two new speakers come together. They each share information about their current practices in theatre training. Together they discuss future trends and emerging best practices that can help create a robust performing arts culture globally – one that accounts for the disruptions of the pandemic yet delivers value-based drama pedagogy for students, teachers and practitioners of theatre.

Unrehearsed Futures started in the month of July. And we hope to continue the momentum through to October. After which we hope to conclude with a global online symposium in November-December and publish our findings in early 2021.
