To become a better storyteller
To become a pro-active theatre thinker
To become an inspiring theatre collaborator
To immerse oneself into the process of creating
To gain a form of critique that is constructive which inspires growth and progress
To understand the difference between process and performance
To trust in the freedom of process and the freedom of form
Begin to put your finger on the spine of what frees you.
To learn how to work, and create work, in a group dynamic
To find art in all we do and see
To build an arsenal of tools of how to articulate the art we see and the art we seek
