Teaching, directing and helping my students discover their artistic voices in whatever creative venue that applies. Also connecting with disciplines outside of the arts to encourage conversation through the theatre.
Politically and socially relevant theatre, how it can be used on college campuses to help diversity. Augusto Boal's Theatre of the Oppressed.
Exploring how contemporary playwrights have dealt with controversial issues, such as race, sexuality, religion, and class and discovering how theatre can be used as a vehicle to unite communities and encourage dialogue.
I also love teaching beginning acting where we focus on discovering and freeing the actor's voice, body and spirit.
