Research based Theatre, Pedagogy, Diversity

March 2023

This Residency features a group of international scholar-artists committed to developing interdisciplinary theatre-based projects focusing on complex societal issues. The 14 scholar-artists from North America, Europe, and Asia (including 4 scholar-artists from Spain) bring a wealth of diverse experiences in theatre and pedagogy. During our time at FABER-Olot, we will work collectively on an emerging project that integrates the aesthetics of professional theatre with pedagogical, scholarly, and community-based commitments.

A key reason to gather this international group is to engage in conversations around how our respective work on wellbeing and diversity issues translate into different geographical, cultural and community settings. Collectively, we aim to design a research-based theatre (https://rbtlab.ubc.ca) and pedagogical process that is inclusive and community-driven. Rather than developing a uniform approach or a constricting set of guidelines, we aim to provide a landscape of possibilities for working with research-based theatre and pedagogy in diverse contexts. We aim to learn from one another and build on each other’s knowledge and commitments to social and health equity.
