The theatre program exposes students to the fundamentals of creative dramatics and foundational acting techniques through process-oriented classes.
Students discover an awareness of their own creativity and the creativity of others through improvisational theatre exercises, movement, and literature. An emphasis is placed on ensemble building, spontaneity, presence, voice and movement, environment, relationships, purpose/objectives, monologues and scene study. Students work as a collective to refine their storytelling abilities with a deeper understanding of human behavior. Performance opportunities will be consistently available to the different groups.
Blessed Unrest is the official youth theater company of Conchita Espinosa Conservatory of the Arts. Debuting in 2016, with a production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Blessed Unrest is dedicated to the voice of the student as an artist, and its focus is primarily on the staging of classical and contemporary works. Each year Blessed Unrest presents a main-stage production open to the public.
