Rehearsing Conflict: A Forum Theatre Performance (June 29, 2017)

Rehearsing Conflict: A Forum Theatre Performance

June 29, 2017, 11:30am-1:30pm at Dorothy Somerset Studio [map]

This summer, members of the UBC community have come together to share and act out stories of conflict in order to find solutions, challenge assumptions, and build understanding, in the Rehearsing Conflict: Theatre Workshop Series. Join us for the final performance on June 29, for a unique theatrical experience that will feature the results of this work.

This free show will involve reflection on the difficult conversations we all face in the UBC workplace and there will be space for interactive community dialogue. In forum theatre, some audience members even voluntarily become part of the story by jumping on stage. Everyone is encouraged to attend and interact with the performance at their own comfort level.

There is no cost to attend, but please RSVP via email to conflict.theatre@ubc.ca.
