Event Description
An art-into-theater workshop for ages 11-16. Students explore the power of the protest poster as a tool to agitate, educate, and inspire as they study an exhibition of international protest posters. Students respond to the images using improvisation and role-play to create theatrical scenarios and characters. Elements of set-design and art direction in addition to dramaturgy feature strongly in this day-long workshop. Students may choose which area they wish to focus on so backstage talent is also needed! At 4:30 PM, students will give a public performance of an original 15-minute play that they will create during the workshop. / Pre-registration required / $ / Contact SMA Education Department, 785.864.0137 or smakids@ku.edu
