COVID-19 or not, Theatre in Education continues as normal. The coronavirus measures have inspired us to set up a virtual theatre in which we work with livestream, produce talk shows and present digital products, both for education and the public. We also continue to work with communities, naturally in compliance with the 1.5m social distancing and hygiene measures.
