What's on Wednesday (W.O.W.) - What's It All About?

GTC Dramatic Dialogues returns to the campus of the University Minnesota Crookston during Welcome Week for an encore live performance of provocative multi-faceted "What's It All About," which depicts the compromising positions college students can get themselves into when it comes to racism, sexual assault, and alcohol abuse. GTC Dramatic Dialogues addresses these issues head on with frank and open discussions. Participants can expect to be challenged to think and develop educated opinions. They'll walk away with greater insight and the confidence to make smart choices!  

The process is simple. Short theatrical scenes taken directly from campus life show behavior related to the topic of the program. Sometimes funny, sometimes dramatic, always entertaining, these scenes grab students both emotionally and intellectually, making them 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.
