About the event
How expansive of a role can THEATRE play in the progressive world and the problems we face as a society today? Can it be utilized by individuals and viewed by society beyond 1) a form of expression, 2) a type of entertainment for the masses, and 3) “just a hobby?”
This workshop aims to engage young minds in utilizing theatre as a vital tool in creating space for dialogue about the problems that plague our communities, and ultimately sparking actions that support social justice.
Through design thinking, applied theatre, and improvised theatre techniques, students in this master class will collaborate on identifying a unified cause for the entire class to explore. Each young artist will be given the space, tools, and support to create their own piece that shares a unique perspective about the chosen cause, perhaps calling their chosen audience to action and ultimately paving a path toward change and empathy in the community.
WHAT TO BRING: A journal and pen!
