Peter Brook : “Art only becomes useful to man and society if it contains within it an urge to action.”
At Francophone Youth Theatre we believe that every youth studying French as a foreign language can express it on stage and thus live it fully. We promote the French language through theatre with different actions.
People practicing theatre are able to express themselves through their speech and to gradually discover a new facet of themselves thanks to this self in this new language.
“What is crucial for teaching is not to understand how language is structured but how language is used,” writes Bachmann.
Indeed theatre provides a medium for this. It creates a setting where the text shines through the actors’ speech and body language. Hence the performance itself becomes a language understood by everyone.
