Entanglement in Education uses theatre as a vehicle to tackle some of the toughest issues young people face, in a safe and controlled environment.
Consent - on personal boundaries and how to communicate them
Substance abuse - when and how to say "no"
Freedom of expression - Where is the line between freedom and responsibility?
Bullying - How do you tackle bullying and what can you do as a bystander.
A student's reflection "This workshop enabled us to‘experience’ and understand racism, and the effects of racism, in a way that worksheets and presentations could never have allowed us to. This in turn meant that the debate that followed somehow felt more relevant, and allowed every student to feel involved. The fact that the actors, and not our teachers ran the debate meant that though our mentor was still present, there was less pressure for us to always say the ‘right’ answer and allowed us to explore more realistic scenarios."
Feedback from a year leader at the International School of The Hague "Forum workshop at the ISH have helped bring complex issues such as bullying and racism into the open where attitudes and values can be changed"
A reaction from an observing tutor "I thought it was amazing and watching how engaged the students were, I think they were impressed and challenged to re-think attitudes and behaviors."
