A theatre of all abilities
If TYA strives to be a „theatre for everyone“ – it has to be a theatre of all abilities! How can theatre truly become inclusive and what are the conditions under which artistically ambitious work for people with disabilities can develop? You can individually choose from workshops and/or forums.

Drama and theatre arts offer powerful opportunities to engage people of many abilities in powerful ways. Using highly participatory creative drama techniques, active discussion starters, and community engagement structures, this session explores ways that drama and theatre techniques can support inclusion among artists, students, and audience members with and without disabilities.
