- The workshop leader introduces Object Theatre with a short presentation and explains the basic principles of this artistic form.
- Students start by physically and vocally warming up. They introduce themselves and are led through a few theatre exercises on emotions, rhythm, focus…
- Grades 1, 2 and 3: Students choose and manipulate objects based on various instructions – make them appear, create an emotion, follow a musical rhythm. At the end of the workshop, they transform a napkin using the techniques learnt and by letting their imagination speak for itself.
- Grade 4 onwards: Through exercises that highlight the poetic and expressive power of objects, they create silent sequences by following rhythm and acting instructions given by the workshop leader. These are done with or without music.

- Gain confidence through the use of the students’ imagination.
- Develop a personal aesthetic and a critical vision.
