The Deconstructive Theatre Project’s integrated theatre in education program brings the company’s unique collaborative theatre-making process into middle school reading/writing and history classrooms in New York City. Company teaching artists lead students through a five-day series of collaborative theatre-making exercises which emphasize the importance of creativity, cooperation, and communication skills and aim to increase subject matter comprehension. Since its founding in 2012, the integrated theatre in education program has engaged nearly 1,000 students from across the five boroughs of New York City.

For more information or to express an interest in partnership, please contact Director of Education Arielle Lever.

Student Feedback

I would like to thank all the actors and actresses that spent their time mentoring us and who really helped our group and gave us some great ideas and made me feel like I am a good actress – I just needed a shine. The most important thing I learned is to always have confidence in yourself.Kristine

I felt very proud of myself because it was such a big change [today in our piece]. It changed for the better and everyone put their best foot forward. I’m really proud of all the work we accomplished. Alameda

Thank you for all you have done with me and my other classmates. You may think all you did with us was help make a play, but you did more. You helped form better actors and better people. Damon

Thank you for making me an artist.” Krystal
