Come join us for the 1st official meeting for the newest Special Interest Group. Applied Theatre is an umbrella term to describe theatre practices used in community, educational, therapeutic, and/or service contexts. It is often created with people who do not consider themselves artists. Commonly know formats are Playback Theatre, Theatre of the Oppressed, Drama Therapy, Devised Theatre, Prison Theatre and so much more! This group is to support current practitioners, to educate SETC members about Applied Theatre, to encourage collaboration between traditional and non-traditional theatre artists, and to motivate future generations to consider making Applied Theatre part of their career, craft, and art.
