Drama in Education in Primary Schools in China
A presentation in Together We Go On Festival by IDEA
Hello, I am Miao Bin
a theatre educator & actor
I'm from China, and have been studying and working in Greece for years. I had my Master study in Department of Theatre Studies, University of Peloponnese in Greece and was awarded by the University as the Ambassador for the MA of Drama in Education. Currently I'm PhD candidate of theatre studies in University of Peloponnese, as well as the member of IDEA (International Drama Education Association), Hellenic Theatre/Drama & Education Network and Orff-Schulwerck Section of China Musicians Association and the Director of Chengdu Overseas Exchange Association.
Back from Greece, I started the first regular drama courses in the primary schools in Chengdu, also one of the few in China, for which every student has one drama class every week. The drama course inspired by Myrtis was reported by Kathimerini in Greece, and officially supported by Chinese Embassy in Greece, Greek Embassy in China and Chengdu government, etc.
In 2020, I received the "Golden Mask Award" by IDEC (International Drama Education Congress) in Beijing.
Besides theatre/drama educator, I'm also actor and director. From 2019 to 2020, I worked with Peraikos Syndesmos Drama School as playwright, producer and actor, on the Greek-Chinese theatre production "Farewell My Concubine", which was successfully premiered in 7th February 2020 in Athens.
I'm the founder of Meet Culture which has been focusing on the culture exchange between China and Greece since 2014, and have successfully accomplished a large amount of projects of Chinese and Greek culture, such as "From the Ink" Chinese Animation in Greece, "Traveling China" Festival co-organized with Kazanzakis Museum, 2019 Greek Educational Drama Summer School, Meet Greece Music Journey in 2015, 2017 and 2018, Greek Cultural Heritage Winter School, "Aegean" the first album between China and Greece, Chinese Cultural Talks in Athens, Greek Library in Chengdu, etc. For my contribution to the culture exchange between China and Greece, I was awarded by the Mayor of Athens as "Chief Chinese Friend of Athens".
I have also been a travel blogger living in Greece, and has published his book “Adventure with Greek Gods” which has received the score of 8.3/10 in douban.com by my readers.
