We have now finalized our dates in Malawi. We will there from the end of April to mid May 2012. We are once again staying at the excellent Mabuya Camp backpackers and flying Ethiopian Airlines.
There will be 11 students and myself going to Malawi. The plan is to participate in workshops with Theatre for a Change, perform our verbatim / forum play, make a variety of visits throughout Lilongwe and deliver drama workshops to schools and communities.
I am looking forward to starting this term at St. Mary's as we will formally begin the Theatre for Development module. We will have a variety of visiting lecturers this term including experts on HIV, Alistair Milne [SMUC's head technician] to deliver a workshop in health & safety and Patrick Young, the director of Theatre for a Change.
