Inspired by the 1960s Antiuniversity movement and the Free University of Liverpool, we initiated the GVT Anti-School in November 2020.
The Anti-School is a response to the failures of the existing drama education structure, and we want to look closely at how a digital programme of non-hierarchical learning can provide a remedy to the monolithic, mono-cultural approach of existing institutions.
The Anti-School is rooted in the idea that theatre is a tool to view and change the world around us, and that knowledge is reciprocal. If we disrupt how we learn to make theatre, if we change the ways we understand it, then new ways of understanding the world can emerge; new, different links can be made between communities who take part in the theatre experience.
