About, Culture Xpress – Music- Drama

In the class we use the cultural meeting which is happening in the folk high school stay to express yourself at the same time as you will get a lot of tools to build up your own future projects here and abroad.

In the class Culture Xpress – Music Drama we will in a playing process create a kind of cultural performance with music, drama and performance. We are totally convinced that  human beings are born to be social and creative. In music and drama we will train your ability to feel and express vital skills like: Cooperation, reflection, attention, presence, motivation and the ability and courage of expression.

In making our performance we will work with 2 forms of expressions – the instrumental musical in the orchestra and theater-art. We work actively with:

  • Rhythmically and musical training
  • Training of singing
  • Communication between class mates and audience
  • Basic parts of dram
  • The important story

We build up our performance together. We write it  together and in this way we put in your life experiences and creative inputs in the performance. We communicate the important story on your background. A story is important because it tells a story about you or your class-mates

The goal of Culture Xpress

The goal is that you and your class-mates together make a performance. We create cultural products of music, drama and performance.

In the process we will give you the necessary tools to make an artistic expression from you position – to use in other situations in your life – or in Africa. It might be a song or a dance or in drama a sketch or story-telling. We work with openness although the starting point is in your own life experience.

Meeting new cultures

In the class you will come to know yourself much better because you in interaction with your class-mates become better to performe for others. You learn to stand and express in front of the audience.

We train to communicate our own cultural production – a song, dance or story-telling which is based in your won culture so that you become confident in meeting new and strong  cultural expressions from Africa.
