Prem Tinsulanonda International School’s ongoing partnership with ISTA (International Schools Theatre Association), now in its sixth year, was the largest to date. From 24 to 26 January 2020, approximately one hundred and fifty young people, teachers, directors and artists were spending time together, devising brand new theatre on the Prem campus in Chiang Mai Thailand.
All participants were exposed to a range of different professional approaches to theatre making and along with eight other schools, Prem students created a memorable piece of performance that was entirely based around the thoughtful, creative responses of the participants.
Prem’s Creative Director, Alex Soulsby, commented “ISTA’s approach of engaging young people on their own terms rather than that of the adult practitioners, always results in spectacular and authentic youth-centred theatre. Being guided by professional, theatre makers and having the chance to work in international ensembles is a brilliant opportunity to nurture their abundant creativity”
