Primary Instructor:

In this mini-course, students will work with the instructor to create a new form of “serious play: that is, a series of exercises that draw on theatre games, improv, and role play aimed to facilitate conversation about topics (“being there” for a friend or family member going through very hard times; conversation across seemingly impenetrable differences) that are not easily approached through discussion alone.

The course will be small—a working group/troupe of no more than 6-8. In some sessions we will be joined by people with relevant expertise in improv/theatre games, intergroup dialogue, and others who have worked hard in ways complementary to the course. The exercises/activities we develop will be “beta tested” in a range of settings.

Intended Audience:

This course is open to any UM undergrad from any college. Creativity and a taste for adventure are essential. Enrollment is by permission of the instructor. Interested students should email hgreensp@umich.edu.

Minicourse Meets 10/27-12/5/18
