Study Abroad

The nation of Brazil has a long history of using theatre as a vehicle to discuss and promote social justice causes. In Brazil, you will collaborate with Brazilian theatre students and faculty while attending theatre classes at UniRio and observing the theatre work being done not just in Brazilian prisons but also in the Maré favela and in two hospitals in Rio de Janeiro. Learn about what theatre can accomplish in non-traditional settings and why people engage in performance practices in these challenging contexts.

Prerequisite: RCCORE 334.007/THTREMUS 335- Theatre and Incarceration. Requires permission of instructor and CEGIS Global Course Connection application. Email Ashley Lucas to schedule an interview.
