BIYT is a unique, innovative theater ensemble open to children and young people aged 8-20 from many different countries, cultures, ages, and schools. Our goal is to provide participants with the opportunity to connect with like-minded young people, develop performance skills and create their very own high-quality theatre productions in English. Our teachers offer expert theater training in a supportive and safe environment, using a combination of modern and ancient storytelling and performance techniques. Our annual professional productions engage the fantasy of young and old, while encouraging the audience and actors to think beyond the fantasy and examine the deeper issues of the play. The group was founded in 2008 at English Theatre Berlin. Students from all school between the ages of 8-20 with a working knowledge of English are welcome to join.
BIYT Ignite (ages 8 - 10) Saturdays 10:00 am - 11:30 am In 2019 we launched a brand new theater program especially for children aged 8 to 10! These classes are designed to fire up young imaginations and spark a love of theater and performance. The focus is on having fun, gaining confidence, learning skills and making friends along the way. We play theater games, move, dance, practice characterisation and work together to bring stories to life.
The BIYT Lab (ages 11-14) Saturdays 11:00 am -13:30 The focus of these classes is discovering the magic of theater. The process involves stretching and strengthening the basic tools of acting that everyone already has – the imagination, body and voice. The first part of the class consists of fun, relaxing theater games to free the imagination, make us feel comfortable within the group and inspire self-confidence. The second part focuses on scene building exercises and improvisations which work towards the creation of original text.
The BIYT Ensemble (ages 15-20) Saturdays 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
This year BIYT has been investigating OUR ECOSYSTEM. There were many possible directions to go. Each individual class had the opportunity to decide which area they wanted to explore theatrically. BIYT Ensemble chose to explore the journey of a seed. But not just any journey, a very unique and dangerous one. At the end of the term in June there will be a public performance to share our dramatic explorations of this subject.
