Performances using shadows to talk about social justice topics

There will be an open viewing of shadow performances to illustrate two social justice pieces, Wednesday in the Jackman Dramatic Art Centre.

Students of the Drama in Education and Community class invite the campus community to their shadow performance The Monsters We Don’t See, in the Movement Studio on Nov. 27 at 10:30 a.m.

  • “Hope/Less” raises awareness and shows the effects of mental health issues.
  • “I Remember” discusses the effects of human trafficking.

The total running time of the performances is 15 minutes, followed by a brief question-and-answer session about the processes, techniques, etc. Some of the themes and images may be upsetting.

Also Wednesday, students in the fourth-year course, Theatre for Young Audiences, will present Amazing Aesop Fables in the DRED Studio at 1:30 p.m.
