Learn Spanish through theatre games. For teens and adults

About this event

This virtual workshop will take a deep dive into the nature of language, considers the effects of bypassing intellectual thought when learning new languages, and if it is possible to acquire vital elements of a second language through our senses. Maca and Victor will guide the participants to open their body-mind to perceive new beats and melodies that the Latin language entails. By integrating the physical body into the learning process, the instructors attempt to stimulate interconnectivity of personal experience in the here and now. In other words, they place language learning in the present as a lived bodily and emotional experience.
