Set the stage for success
Graduate with an array of skills that employers—both inside and outside the arts—demand and that are essential for our knowledge economy that values collaboration, creative problem solving, communication skills, and flexibility.
Theatre doesn’t only teach you about theatre—how to read a script, hang lights, or stage manage a production—it also gives you transferable skills that prepare you for careers in a number of fields. For example, an acting class not only teaches you how to win every time you play charades, it also teaches you how to listen actively and effectively, to improvise in social situations, to perform in front of an audience (whether in a theatre, a meeting room, or a sales pitch), and to place yourself in another person's shoes empathizing with people whose situations are different from your own.
Theatre students typically pursue careers in the creative and performing arts, and in education, although many of our students also find satisfying work in diverse fields, including criminal justice, health care, and business.
Forum Theatre Workshop
Presented by UFV Theatre with Michelle LaFlamme, Ph.D.
May 18th, 2022 from 11:00 am - 12:30 pm.
Location: Room D105, UFV Abbotsford Campus, 33844 King Road.
Lunch will be provided after the workshop in D115 at 12:30 pm.
UFV students are invited to participate in a brief and engaging Forum theatre workshop. La Flamme will outline the aims and power of Forum and we will use theatre games and exercises to build short stories. This workshop is an introduction to our Fall 2022 Season of Theatre. No acting experience is required for the workshop, just curiosity. Bring your story and let's create!
The morning will be fast-paced and dynamic. Please wear loose clothing and be prepared to move, laugh, and learn. The workshop uses important principles of Forum:
- We all carry stories within us.
- Communities have the power to transform problems faced by the community into solutions using improvisation.
- Theatre is an effective means for social change.
