Call for Partners

 

Theatre. Immersion. Education. [T.I.E.] is a residential, 24-hour, intensive experience during which participants will be: introduced to aesthetics of Immersive Theatre, guided through a practical exploration of these strategies, and mentored in the creation of an immersive, theatrical experience about a social justice issue -- a piece that can be shared at the end of the workshop with an invited audience of their choice.

 

T.I.E. is conceptualized and executed by Dr. Nandita Dinesh. Dinesh holds a PhD in Drama from the University of Cape Town in South Africa and an MA in Performance Studies from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. Focused on the role that theatre can play during and after violent conflict, Dr. Dinesh has conducted community-based theatre projects in Kashmir, India, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, and Zimbabwe. In 2017 she was awarded the Elliott Hayes Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dramaturgy by Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas. Dr. Dinesh has published multiple books about her work; a complete list can be found here: https://chroniclesfromkashmir.org/#/the-books/ 

 

A search is underway for partners who might be interested in bringing T.I.E. to their communities.
