TEDxBandra - Fenella Kelly - Entering the Third Space

Fenella Kelly is a drama teacher, teacher trainer, theatre director, dancer and actress. She graduated from Cambridge University in Drama and Education. Wanting to see the world, she then trained as a TESOL teacher, and before she knew it she was co-running a school in Crete. Directing language schools every summer brought her back to the UK, but it was in Istanbul that she found her theatrical feet again, for it is there that she co-ran a theatre company that produced large shows, comprised of an international cast, for charity, and toured with English Language Teaching plays. From Istanbul she headed to Sao Paulo, Brazil, to be head of Performing Arts and teach Theatre and Dance. Next stop was Cairo where she had a similar job. After a brief spell in the UK to do an MA in Drama and Theatre in Education she headed to St. Julian's School, Portugal and she is now working at the American School of Bombay as a High School Drama teacher. She is also part of Expressions Modern Dance Company in Mumbai. Talk: Entering the Third SpaceLeave your shoes at the door and become someone else. This is what happens when Drama students enter the Drama classroom to participate work that takes a slice of life or imitation of life. They are encouraged to see the world through multiple lenses, put themselves into the shoes of others and wipe their own slate clean to start again. The Third Space is a creative place of freedom and exploration, where you can experience having another life, changing your own life, and ultimately living as you would dare to live, within the safety of the third space. How is it created? Why is it important to you? Fenella will explain some of her work in the creation of this space and maybe enable you to find another way of seeing.
