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 cultural change.

Mark and Jenny begin long-term residencies in Milwaukee Public Schools as part of the Fill-the-Gaps program next week. We are particularly excited to be part of MPS’s Year of the Arts programming and to work with children of recent immigrants, refugees, and their peers. We’re headed to UW-Green Bay soon to introduce students to Theatre of the Oppressed, to Arts at Large to get additional training in Trauma Sensitive Teaching, and to the local NAACP Chapter to continue workshops in community building.

Jenny will be offering workshops to Community Learning Centers staff about establishing cultures of respect, responsibility, and empathy, and teaching activist theatre-making in her Theatre and Social Change class at UW-Milwaukee. Mark is assisting in a student adaptation of the Outsiders to focus on local concerns and continues to serve on the Board of PTO.

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.

DEVELOP COMMUNITY, INVITE OPEN DIALOGUE, AND FOSTER 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.
