Research-Based Theatre: Practice, Possibilities, and Assessment Symposium
May 29-31, 2019

Over the course of three days on the University of British Columbia’s Point Grey Campus, the Research-Based Theatre, Practice, Possibilities, and Assessment Symposium will offer participants the opportunity to explore practice and possibilities for strengthening and clearly articulating how to effectively assess Research-Based Theatre (RBT) projects. RBT projects are often cross-disciplinary in nature and combine diverse research methods call for new assessment approaches that can be used in support of funding applications and community partnerships. The symposium will consist of a number of interactive, collaborative sessions exploring RBT assessment, and feature four RBT projects from UBC Research Based Theatre Collaborative: Water in Rural and Indigenous Communities; Disabilities in the Health Professions; Student to Student Abuse in Residential Schools; and Veterans Recovering from Trauma.

UBC’s Research based Theatre (RBT) piece, “Alone in the Ring”, depicting the experiences of students and clinicians with disabilities from the health professions, is now finalized.

We will be performing the play, with all whistles and blowers, props and staging, in two separate events:

May 30th, 11am-12pm, Rm 4202, AMS Nest, Point Gray Campus – please register via this link  – you can state that you are coming only to our performance (this is a 3 day event…)

June 2nd, 7-9:30 pm, as part of a performance panel at the CDSA conference, Robert H. Lee Alumni Centre 6163 University Blvd. Point Gray Campus

We would love to have you join us in one (or both) of those events and to hear your impressions.
