Taylor Gruenloh, assistant teaching professor, will teach a class titled “Theater 1150: Theater for Social Change” 11 a.m.-12:15 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays next semester.

“Theater for social change” means using live performance as a unique way of explore and communicate ideas, and it sets out with the specific intention of contributing to social change.

It includes performance practices ranging from professional political theater staged in mainstream venues and guerrilla or invisible theater on streets to issue-based, site-specific performances and participatory non-professional processes.

The class will survey theatrical productions in their historical contexts. The class will also explore ways in which theater engages perceptions, behaviors and social conditions in audiences and practitioners.

For more information, please contact Gruenloh at gruenloht@mst.edu or the arts, languages, and philosophy department at alp@mst.edu.
