The course proposes using a performative methodological approach as a language teaching tool, from an intercultural perspective based on applied theater. This approach is based on the experience of the body as the starting point for the development of linguistic competence. To do this, it uses techniques, figures and aesthetic processes adapted from the performing arts.
Performing facilitates the development of communication skills, helps reduce the affective filter and encourages participation in an environment of respect for diversity. The course is aimed at teachers interested in knowing the foundations and techniques of applied theater for language teaching. It has a practical orientation, and in the face-to-face sessions learning dynamics will be carried out through applied theater.
This course is an activity for the transfer of research results from the EMILIA R&D project [FFI2017-83166-C2-2-R], financed by FEDER, the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, and the State Research Agency.
