Community Engagement Event
Research-based Theatre Day @ UBC Robson Square
October 21, 2022, 12:00 am to 12:00 am
Join us for our Research-based Theatre Day at UBC Robson Square!
Research-based Theatre (RbT) is a qualitative, arts-based methodology that invites researchers, artists, educators, and participants to collectively translate and transform research phenomena into theatre. This approach makes use of applied drama and theatre strategies and, at its core, rests on two commitments: a) to honour and ethically explore the research context; and b) to engage and commit to the art form of theatre. This introductory workshop will explore key aspects of RbT and its invitation to bring stories of research to life through theatre.
Join us for the first screening of two new short documentaries on Research-based Theatre projects, created by Dr. Tetsuro Shigematsu, followed by a conversation with Research-based Theatre Lab members.
