Using Devised Theater as a Catalyst for Social Change

Take a deep dive into theater as a means to educate, advocate, inspire and build community. Drawing from Augusto Boal's groundbreaking work, Theater of the Oppressed, we will tap into the group’s personal experiences to create a collaborative performance piece around a selected social issue. Discover how devised theater can inspire social change using various activities in order to tap into experience around various socially relevant issues. Through theatre games, idea generating activities and free writing, we will discover our unique performance piece designed to shape the world for the better. Please bring a notebook and pen to class.
