Gain a new perspective on white privilege and reverse discrimination at “Strange Like Me” Tuesday, Oct. 2 in the CMU Ballroom at 7 p.m.
“Strange Like Me” begins with a monologue that lays bare the ugliness of hate, setting the stage for a lively discussion of diversity. The program follows students as they attempt to navigate the sometimes difficult terrain of multicultural campus relationships. During talk-backs, students can confront the characters and voice their own opinions on issues of racism, sexism, and homophobia. “Strange Like Me” is a 90-minute program that gets college students talking about diversity.
GTC Dramatic Dialogues has been offering an innovative approach to dealing with important campus issues since 1995. Their style of Intervention Theater combines short dramatic scenes, moderated talk-backs, and real life scenarios, all of which make GTC Dramatic Dialogues effective in cutting through the rhetoric to get at the real issues. GTC Dramatic Dialogues was born from the desire to use theater as a tool to allow audience participants the opportunity to express their own issues, ideas and suggestions.
