Theatre For Personal and Social Change
Four Modalities: Healing, Education, Activism, and Theatre.
Healing is derived from the fields of Drama Therapy and Psychodrama. We believe that theatre can be used as a tool of reflection and expression for both individuals and communities. Educational theatre allows us to reach out to a variety of students, both child and adult everyone continues learning. The bottomless curiosity of life allows us to expand beyond our physical borders and create a web of driven communities. As the globe continues to shrink and the physical boundaries between communities diminishes we are becoming aware of past, present and perhaps future injustices. We believe in endowing performing artists with the tools to constructively critique the systems they are both subject to and practitioners of. Activism plays a critical world in the human experience, and none should lose an opportunity to be active. As a reflection of the human experience, Theatre is a living art, a bright enigma and a shared experience. It encompasses multitudes, and is well fit for moving an audience towards progress.
