In this session you will learn the steps to create a piece of Verbatim theatre with your students. This verbatim theatre project uses a student-centered consensus building model to create a new work of documentary performance. The program was piloted during the 2015-16 academic year in collaboration with the Blindspot Collective and saw Advanced Drama students at Canyon Crest Academy develop an original performance exploring adolescent mental illness. Students selected the topic themselves, developed inquiry questions, and interviewed various community members including peers, family members, social workers, therapists, and even a mother who lost a son to suicide the previous year. Those interviews were then transcribed, curated, and collated to create a script that might raise awareness of this sensitive and timely issues.
