Theatre. Immersion. Education. [T.I.E.] in the Wild is an 8-hour, intensive, outdoors experience during which participants will be introduced to aesthetics of Immersive Theatre and guided through a practical exploration of these strategies in the wilderness, all while focusing on a social justice issue that matters to them. Over the course of eight hours, workshop participants will get to know the outdoors as an incredible source for the generation of dramatic content, and as an innovative setting for the staging of theatrical form. T.I.E. welcomes participants who are 16 years and older.
