In the capstone course Sexual Assault Education Theater, students have learned about the dynamics of sexual assault as they practice using theater as a tool for social change. Students develop a short play about sexual assault and its prevention based on classroom readings, discussions, prior learning, and lived experiences. This play will be performed for various campus audiences based on the Theatre of the Oppressed Open Forum model, in which audience members are invited to stop and shift the action by joining the play, thereby practicing strategies for facing challenging situations and “rehearsing for the future.” For more information, call the Women's Resource Center at 503-725-5672.
