Our workshops run in three nominal groups: Middle School (MS), High School (HS) and High School / College (HSC). All classes run twice a week: one MS session lasts 75 minutes, while HS and HSC sessions last 90 minutes each. Participant numbers are limited to 15 per group to ensure maximum focus and space for expression.

MIDDLE
SCHOOL

MS classes are designed for students aged 11 to 13, waiting at the departure gate of childhood. Taking into account that puberty is a particularly turbulent flight which creates many insecurities and fears, the MS classes work as an antidote: they are designed to show that moulds aren't always a good thing, that individual thought is an absolute asset, and that it's perfectly alright to act on your creative impulse without the fear of being judged. Safe environment, lots of fun, plays that make actors think and audiences laugh.

HIGH
SCHOOL

HS classes typically cater for students aged 14 to 16. While never neglecting the aspect of fun (by far the most efficient way to learn), we will also challenge these young individuals to take a more active viewpoint of the society that they are blossoming into. Relying on the unique power of drama to make social topics individual and individual topics relevant, we will introduce plays and discussions that tackle topics that students find pertinent: from the school system to the world economic order. HS classes are challenging, inquisitive and empowering.

HIGH SCHOOL
COLLEGE

HSC classes are developed for, and in association with, young adults aged 17 to 22. Faced with the burdening question of "what they want to do with their lives", these individuals too often look at life, careers (including acting) and relationships as canned goods on a supermarket shelf that they have to choose from, thus putting themselves under unhealthy pressures and stifling the inspiration that they possess. Opening a wider, more fluid perspective, our HSC classes really delve into personal choices, options and decisions that all, little by little, form the world we live in.

shades of TRY

I’ve been a member of TRY for two years now and this past year I got the opportunity to co-write V for Verona with Ivan and it was definitely one of the best experiences of my life – it was a big learning process for me. V for Verona was an idea I pitched to Ivan at the beginning of the school year, he liked it and proposed we present it to the class, they liked it too, so we decided to develop it into something bigger. New characters and scenes were brought in throughout the year to accommodate to our class. Ivan wrote scenes and helped me write mine and during the writing flow we discussed characters and scenes. I feel so thankful for this experience!
