Langley, WA 98260
Antioch University Seattle’s Drama Therapy class, Community-Based Theatre, is putting on its annual Decades show this November 19-20, 2017. In the words of Bobbi Kidder, MA, RDT/BCT, AUS Drama Therapy faculty and director of Decades III, “Decades is a devised theatre project initiated in 2015 that gives voice to the intergenerational conflicts and opportunities in our culture… This year, Decades III: Family Stories will present original stories, artwork, and music focused on families of origin.”
In addition to Drama Therapy students, the annual Decades show includes other participants from the wider community. However, Drama Therapy remains at the heart of Decades performances. In Kidder’s words, “Our AUS Community-Based Theatre class incorporates principles of social justice and personal integration and applies them to this active, creative process of devising performance, revealing and reflecting the needs of the community.
The 2017 Decades show will take place at Outcast Productions on Whidbey Island on November 19, 2017 at 4:00 p.m., and at Antioch University Seattle on November 20, 2017, at 7:00 p.m.
