Interactive Theater as Pedagogy 2013 Begins . . .

Posted by on Jan 20, 2013 in Events, Latest News | 1 comment

YouTube Preview Image2013 is underway!  And the first day of our Interactive Theater as Pedagogy (ITP) 2013 project is here!  This 12 week project is an exciting collaboration between Memory War Theater and the University of Washington’s Center for Teaching and Learning.  For the next 3 months 17 participants will be using interactive social justice theater to explore and rehearse a variety of interventions to problematic situations involving privilege and oppression.  ITP will culminate in an interactive Forum Theater performance to be held on the UW campus in April 2013 (date and location TBD).  This gratis and participatory event will be open to the public. We hope to meet you there!  For now, please enjoy following our weekly explorations and preparations.

And remember:  “Theatre is a form of knowledge; it should and can also be a means of transforming society.  Theatre can help us build our future, rather than just waiting for it.” — Augusto Boal
