The Applied Theatre course at RCSSD specializes in working with and for communities:
Catherine McNamara, Central School of Speech and Drama, London, UK:
“We run an MA and BA Applied Theatre and the course focus on theatre practices that promote inclusion and access in a variety of settings where difference or disadvantage might exist. They address the ways theatre can be an agent for change, empowerment, enablement and transformation but also explore the problematics/ethics of such terms and concepts. The ‘applied’ aspect of Applied Theatre, for us, concerns practices that engage with issues, dramatize relevant stories and involve participants in processes that they find useful, informative in ways specific to them.”
