Activism and Outreach Through Theater

THEA 205
Spring 2008
Section: 01   02  
This course may be repeated for credit.
Course Cluster: Service-Learning

Students will put social activism into practice through the staging of theatrical events in unconventional settings (prisons, senior centers, schools). These events will grow out of classwork inspired by Agosto Boal, the Brazilian actor/activist whose work proposes theater as a means for social change. Students need no theatrical experience but can use whatever artistic interests they possess (acting, puppetry, drawing, writing, story-telling, vocal and instrumental music) to work collectively with other students to devise informal presentations and workshops that include the participation of their audiences.
