Upcoming Fall Courses at UVIC Continuing Studies 2017

Transformational Theatre
Based mainly on the Theatre of the Oppressed method created by Brazilian director Augusto Boal, this course integrates various techniques- such as forum theatre, image creation, playback and improvisation-with the objective of achieving positive social and personal transformation through theatre. Transformational Theater is designed to be experiential and fun. It will be particularly useful for theatre workers, social workers, teachers, activists, community workers and anyone interested in using theatre to address societal issues-such as bullying, racism, family and work-related problems, youth and cross-cultural concerns, or community building.
Respect for privacy in a supportive, non-threatening atmosphere is assured. Please wear loose clothing suitable for movement and light shoes.
