Drama and Debate Workshop with Amanah Youth

13 April 2015

Amanah Youth invited The Leaveners and Birmingham Opera Company to deliver a Drama and Debate workshop last Friday 10 April 2015 at the Centre.

The workshop's main theme was a discussion on war, peace and conscientious objection. It involved drama games with wolves, grandmas who needed protection, exploring war and peace in football.

The young people took on the challenge of role-playing the conscientious objection tribunal of Michael Tippett: They got into the roles of the ex-military, medics, teachers, businessmen and Michael Tippett himself to have a proper court-room style debate about whether Michael was ''Doing the Right Thing'' in choosing not to fight in the war.

It was the first time that the Amanah Youth organised such a workshop and it was thoroughly enjoyed by all involved!
