Dramatizing is a way to provide self-expression and helps development of imagination, creativity and cooperation, developing the communicative skills.
Through drama, pupils gain fluency of speech, self-knowledge, self-respect, discipline and self-confidence.
"European Children on the Same Stage" aims to an intercultural exchange, sharing among partners the traditions and everyday life by means of drama.
In the first year pupils in all partner institutions will make an analysis of the plays they read or went to and they will decide upon the most popular ones to be performed in front of the community, activity followed by an exchange between the partner schools.
In the second year pupils will make use of their creativity and imagination, writing a common play about their everyday life, their problems, friendship, hobbies, leisure time, which are almost the same in each country, pointing out that despite the cultural differences, they have almost the same interests and problems. The characters will be commonly decided by all institutions and each partner school will write an act in which it will be presented a certain situation that students face with.
