Department of Theater, Dance,
and Performance Studies
We aim to expand and strengthen theater and performance work of social justice by and for Latinx communities in the American hemisphere.
Our methods are influenced by El Teatro Campesino's Theater of the Sphere,
Paolo Friere, Augusto Boal, and other activists and artists.
We produce theater on stage and in the streets. We practice together in the classroom with our community of family, friends, and partners. We do workshops with new students, alumni, and community members.
