With Will MacAdams
Across the country – and around the world – theater artists are creating work with organizers, elders, young people, and those whose stories are rarely on stage but who form the living heart of communities. Rejecting the belief that theater can only happen on traditional stages, this work is made in farming towns, on city blocks, in indigenous communities, and in places in between – and celebrates the ritualistic roots of theatre while building the future through partnerships with movements for justice and healing. Through reading and creative practice, students in this course will study this vibrant art form and create original works of theatre across the campus and beyond, with members of your own communities and in places you call home. Theatre experience is not required.
