Applied Theatre Action Initiative builds unique theater arts programming locally and internationally, and supports the proliferation of applied theatre as a medium for education and social transformation.
In Applied Theatre, the steps for making theatre are used to make social change.
Unlike traditional theatre experience, applied theatre is more focused on the process of creation than on producing a performance. Applied theatre doesn’t have to be on a stage. It can be a way to examine shared experiences, to collaborate and explore identity, and to educate. Want to know more?
