Transforming Theatre Ensemble
Transforming Theatre Ensemble (TTE) provides an interactive learning experience that engages audiences in collaborative problem solving. Theatrical sketches are used as a focal point for dialogue lead by a skilled facilitator. Based on Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed, TTE creates a safe distance for an audience to reflect on and analyze problematic attitudes and behaviors, as a first step toward transformation.
As TTE’s presence on and off campus has grown since its inception in 2007, we’ve been poised to address a variety of themes for Faculty, Staff, Student, and Community audiences, including:
Bullying, Harassment, Workplace Conduct, How to Conduct Investigations, Religious Discrimination, Guest Service Principles, Giving Productive Feedback, Cultural Competence in Healthcare, Best Practices for Studying Abroad, Teaching & Learning, K-12 Achievement Gap.
TTE also addresses bias in various university processes, such as undergraduate advising, mentoring, hiring, and the tenure process.
The Ensemble utilizes a variety of theatrical formats that are adaptable to a client's specific needs. TTE performances can be arranged as independent programs or as part of a special workshop, institute, or retreat.
