Posted on: March 24th, 2013

Beginning March 28, join Theatre UCF and Zebra Coalition for interACTionZ – A Series of Workshops Exploring the Masks We Wear, Our Inner Bully and Stereotyping.

Through these Theatre for Social Change workshops youth will breakdown and explore different experiences from their own lives in order to gain a clearer understanding of themselves. This hands-on and thought-provoking group requires no previous theatre experience. (ages 13 – 24).

The Mask: Discovering Your Public Profile – Do you ever wonder if and how your actions effect how people look at you? In this workshop, we will first explore the different ways we choose to present ourselves publicly, from how we act around friends, teachers, and leaders to how we dress and represent ourselves in this age of social media. Then we will explore how others perceive us. Through the use of theatre for social change games and improvisations, we will begin to discover the control we have over how others perceive us and how to begin to master that control.

The Midnight Crisis: Facing Your Inner Bully – Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night full of fear and doubt? In this workshop, we will participate in peer-driven activities, games, and improvisation that will explore and address issues surrounding self-doubt and self-loathing. Specifically, we will use theatrical activities as a force to face our own inner bully; proving that we are capable of great things if we can just get out of our own way.

Breaking Free of Stereotypes: Reflecting on Your Reflection – Don’t succumb to physical stereotypes! How often have you felt mis-labeled due to the way that you look, dress, or present yourself? No matter what community you are a part of, our society is full of stereotypes. What can we do to be true to our individual selves, rather than accepting the labels society places upon us? In this workshop, we will get up on our feet and take a stand for who we are, not just for how we look.
