    WHAT PARTICIPANTS SAY ABOUT THIS COURSE

    > "I loved it and would do it again. Acting for Life❤. Thank you guys!” - Moya (Switzerland)

    > "I previously had no theatre experience but was something I always wanted to try. The PLEK team is really enthusiastic, the teachers really love what they do and have a genuine interest in the participants and making the experience and every lesson unique. If you want to meet interesting individuals, have an acting experience and discover more about your self and theatre then join a course. I highly recommend it!" - Archontoula (Greece)

    > "Doing the theatre course was a chance to let loose and try something new in a safe and warm environment. I loved the focus on physicality and moving our bodies, working with movement and voice. Working with different facilitators provided an opportunity to experience unique approaches to creating theatre. One of the best parts of the experience was seeing how a group of disparate individuals can grow into a supportive community encouraging each other to take risks." - Sara (South Africa)

    > "From this course, I gained a deeper connection with my body in relation to space and the others around me and how our body is a vehicle that transmits life as life goes through us." - Anonymous
