The Interactive Theater as Pedagogy Project (ITPP) is a unique kind of Learning Community. It is a group of UW faculty, staff educators, and graduate students who are committed to building skills in social change theater to spark dialogue on issues of institutional oppression and privilege. ITPP uses Theater of the Oppressed methods to rehearse a variety of responses to situations involving oppression and privilege, promotes community dialogue around difficult issues, and discusses applications of interactive theater approaches in the classroom and other institutional settings. Project participants create and perform interactive plays that depict the complexities and challenges of this diverse university climate, and aim to prompt reflection, response, and action among audience members.
ITPP is a collaboration between the CTL and Memory War Theater, a Seattle-based theater company devoted to personal and community transformation through performing arts, partnerships, and education. Co-directors of ITPP: Theresa Ronquillo (Instructional Consultant, CTL) and Tikka Sears (Artistic Director, Memory War Theater).
