“What’s It All About” dramatic dialogues performed Aug 28-29
An interactive program on diversity, substance abuse and sexual assault called “What’s It All About,” is coming to campus on Tuesday, Aug. 28, and Wednesday, Aug. 29, at 7:30 p.m., in the Memorial Union Ballroom.
The program presented by GTC Dramatic Dialogues and High Impact Training 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 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.
The program is free, open to the campus community, and is sponsored by departments in the Division of Student Affairs including, Residence Services, Dean of Students, Health and Wellness, Women’s Center, and Multicultural Student Services. The same program will be performed each night.
