RATIONALE

Theatre Arts is at the centre of the cultural expression of Caribbean peoples. As a discipline, Theatre Arts reflects life and contributes uniquely to the spiritual, intellectual, social, emotional, and aesthetic growth of an individual. Theatre Arts employs a variety of arts, such as, dance, choreography, acting, playwriting and directing. It also uses the crafts of the carpenter, painter, artist and designer, and the skills of organisation, co-ordination, and stage management of activities. Consequently, Theatre Arts also contributes invaluably to the creative economy of the region.

Through Theatre Arts we are able to express our deepest emotions, thus satisfying our innate urge to communicate. It is this urge to communicate that helps us to interact with the world. Theatre Arts provides an important means of understanding, constructing, appreciating, and communicating social and cultural values. It allows us to interpret, value, and transmit traditions of the past; explore, celebrate, challenge the present, and build concepts of the future through the imagination. Theatre Arts also encourages team- building and problem solving strategies that have become important requirements in the contemporary work environment.
