Thursday Commons: 'What's It All About?'
Thursday, August 29, 2013
This program is presented by GTC Dramatic Dialogues and High Impact Training and consists of short theatrical scenes taken directly from campus life that show behavior related to the topics of diversity, substance abuse, and sexual assault. These scenes engage both emotionally and intellectually, making the audience want to talk about what they have seen. Following each scene there is a moderated discussion or "talk-back" between the actors and the audience.
During the discussion the actors remain in character, allowing students to question or confront them about their behavior. Through questioning, the audience uncovers the hidden assumptions motivating the characters' actions. The result is an entertaining, energetic and informative debate in which students are led to examine their own behavior and consider what they can do to create the kind of world in which they want to live.
Thursday, August 28, from Noon to 2 p.m. in Kiehle Auditorium
