Helping you prepare for moments that matter

Through the dynamic techniques of Theatre of the Oppressed and other forms of applied theatre, we invite audiences to become active participants in exploring pressing social issues. Our workshops go beyond traditional theatre, inviting spectators to step into the scenarios, challenge oppressive systems, and collaborate to envision alternative realities.  

Schedule a Workshop

We don't always know the right thing to say, so why not take some time to practice before those moments happen. Schedule a workshop with us to practice.

Our dynamic team brings the power of interactive theatre directly to your community, department, faculty meeting or student group. Whether you're seeking to foster dialogue, build empathy, or address pressing social issues, our workshops provide an engaging space for participants to explore, learn, and act together to create a healthier campus environment. We will work with you to customize a workshop to address your specific needs.
