Other Artistic Activities
SHABANO IN FRENCH CLASS
The Théâtre du Shabano partners with French teachers to create interdisciplinary workshops centered on literary texts. These musical and hands-on programs work to develop creativity but can also improve trust and group cohesion. The company works closely with the MGI (an organization that promotes artistic activities for school children in Paris).
Supplemental activities around performances:
The company offers teachers short pedagogical supplements for their classes in preparation for Shabano performances. Depending on the themes of the play, these workshops introduce students to the puppeteering techniques used by the company, shadow puppets, music or the body alphabet.
Workshops can be modified depending on the length desired by the teacher. The company has written various programs for children from 5-8 years old.
