Center for Applied Theatre

The Center for Applied Theatre uses techniques based on those developed by Nobel Peace Prize nominee, theatre director, and activist Augusto Boal, to assist groups to examine attitudes and habits, invite open dialogue, develop creativity, identify problems and actively test solutions for real life implementation. Our programs and workshops release potential in individuals while building group cohesion and promoting positive change.

CAT just completed a 14 week residency as part of the Fill-the-Gaps initiative at two Milwaukee Public Schools with a focus on changing the culture of the school community through the arts. One of the schools, Lancaster Elementary, was just chosen to be part of the federal Turnaround Arts Program. We will be presenting on this and other work, and offering a workshop, at the Imagining America conference in October in Milwaukee.

And, we are currently exploring some international workshop offerings. Meanwhile,  Jenny continues to teach activist theatre-making in her Participatory Theatre classes at UW-Milwaukee and Mark continues to work as the Community Representative Liaison for PTO. Watch for his segment of the article “Shaking Hands with out Mentors” in the next edition of the PTO Journal.

We are always looking for new opportunities to serve educational institutions, NGOs, and activist groups as they develop progressive programs to transform themselves and their communities. As a 501c3 organization, we are happy to participate in grant writing to fund new projects! Feel free to contact us if you have any suggestions or would like us to offer some workshops at your location.

Applied Theatre Programs…

CLARIFY OBJECTIVES, BUILD SKILLS AND REHEARSE PRACTICAL ACTION by engaging participants in interactive theatre techniques and exercises to examine issues, plan actions, and practice strategies to become active participants in transformation.

INVITE OPEN DIALOGUE AND EXCHANGE OF IDEAS in a stimulating and supportive environment. Working together, participants recognize old habits, develop new responses, and envision positive change.

DEVELOP CREATIVITY while having fun doing whole-brain, whole-body activities which are designed to encourage individual initiative, self-awareness, personal accountability, and flexibility in thought and action.

EMPOWER GROUPS TO SOLVE PROBLEMS by actively exploring issues of concern. Participants imagine and practice ways to improve the communities and institutions in which they live and work.

CENTER for APPLIED THEATRE PROGRAMS transform ideas into action in ways that are challenging and supportive, entertaining and effective. CAT has worked with students, educators, administrators, worker organizations, youth groups, service associations, community centers, social justice activists, NGOs, and others to explore ways in which people can voice their concerns and become peaceful agents of meaningful change.
