VAV Theatre for Dialogue Course Offerings

The VAV Theatre for Dialogue performances are presented by undergraduate and graduate UT Austin students who are trained as actor-facilitators working to "Foster inclusive conversations around the prevention of interpersonal violence through performance-based learning." Those interested in becoming part of the ensemble will benefit from participation in the VAV course sequence as it will prepare you to become a skilled and impactful leader on UT's campus. Previous performance experience is NOT required to be in the class. Students who are interested in the pedagogy but not participate in the ensemble are also welcome! You will learn about issues of interpersonal violence, bystander intervention, and methods of applied and interactive theatre. Credit is available through the School of Social Work, Theatre and Dance, or Women's and Gender Studies, speak with your advisor for more information.

Curious to learn more about how theatre has historically been used and can be applied to your work as an intervention for positive health and culture change? Register for:
