Baltic Applied Theatre School

The Power of Performative Exploration

At Baltic Applied Theatre School, we bridge the world of theatre and everyday life. At the heart of our mission is the belief that theatre can resonate deeply within organisations, communities, and individuals. We bring this belief to life through our three main pillars: Applied Theatre Training Workshops, Organisational Practices and Community Projects.

 

But what binds these areas together is not just the methodology of Applied Theatre; it's a shared ethos of authenticity, engagement, and transformation. Let's redefine boundaries, let's challenge norms, let's harness the power of theatre to co-create a more empathetic, connected, and expressive world.

"Applied Theatre is an opportunity to discover solutions in situations where you otherwise cannot. It hands you not only your own resources, but ideas, energy and support from the community." - Liia Kanemägi, BATS participant.

Join us in reminiscing on last year's Baltic Applied Theatre School - three profound, active and unforgettable workshops in Lithuania and Latvia that connected artists and professionals from all three Baltic states. 

Check out the video where you get a feel of the training, the facilitators and what participants took out from this journey.

Workshop 1: October 18-21, 2023, in Liepāja, Latvia

We're raring to go and ready to guide you on a transformative journey into the realm of socially engaged artistry. Take a moment to peek at the programme section on our website to savour the rich experiences we have in store for you. 

Welcome to our very first online series on Applied Theatre! In this series, we have interviewed theatre practitioners who have been working for decades with different communities and in different contexts. Each short video will tackle one aspect of Applied Theatre to give viewers an introductory knowledge about this rich and ever-expanding field. 

If you want to know what topics we cover, check out the blog. And here you come to the YouTube Playlist.

This is possible thanks to the German Embassy in Vilnius, which supports our endeavours to spread the knowledge of applied theatre!
