THEATER 114 – INTERACTIVE THEATER – ACTING FOR SOCIAL CHANGE (PERFORMANCE WORKSHOP) Engage for 6 weeks in creating a social justice summer theater company. Each day we deepen our practice by developing full-bodied and whole-hearted skills: the technical needs of an actor (voice, speech, physical movement, and character development) and the personal cultural awareness and communication habits of an activist. We will activate our imaginations, give voice to stories of injustice, and move the classroom community from page to stage, from company membership to civic leadership. Grounded in the work of Augusto Boal, we will experience the role of theater in education, justice-making, and societal transformation, and strengthen our practice as writers, actors, directors, witnesses, and makers of theater and social change. Interactive theater training and performance mixed with multicultural and communication skills prepare us for deeper artistic, academic, and activist work in our person
