Stay Day 2011: Interactive Theatre Program

"Pride and Privilege" Interactive Theatre Program: 9:00am-10:00am

Interactive Theater is a collaborative experiential learning tool that uses live theater and audience participation to explore solutions to challenges in interpersonal interactions. Performers present scenarios on a range of diversity issues. Through facilitated dialogue the participants work through their own perspectives, emotions and assumptions to gain a greater awareness of issues that can lead to conflict or result in allegations or complaints of discrimination.
