Faculty in the Field with Professor Jennifer Cleary

Theater for Social Change

"Perhaps the theater is not revolutionary in itself; but have no doubts, it is a rehearsal of revolution!" -- Augusto Boal, "Theatre of the Oppressed" (1974)

Brazilian theater director, thinker and artist Augusto Boal believed that theater has a purpose and power beyond mainstream theater forms, particularly in helping those facing oppression. Professor Cleary will show how Boal's seminal work, "Theater of the Oppressed," and methods of using theater techniques helped create social dialogues.

Jennifer Cleary is a senior lecturer in theater arts. She earned her master's degree in arts in education from Harvard and is a proud member of Actors' Equity Association. Professor Cleary received the Louis Dembitz Brandeis Prize for Excellence in Teaching in 2015.
