Maroon Arts and Culture’s

Black Theatre Lab: Virtual Edition

The objectives of this workshop are as follows:
  • To provide students with a foundation of Black theatre history and an understanding of Afrocentric methodologies.
  • To supplement existing academic curricula with culturally relevant instruction and materials.
  • To engage students in practical exercises that translate theoretical learning into tangible artistic expression.
  • To contribute to the development of Sandbranch- Maroon Arts and Culture’s legacy project, through student-driven research and creative input.

Rooted in heritage and focused on the future, Afrocentricity X Dramaturgy (AXD) is an approach to the development of creative work that centers Black experience and interrogates White gaze. Drawing on research from Africana studies, theatre arts and performance studies, this perspective looks at the development of creative work as not just a process, but a way of understanding and interacting with the world around us and- more importantly- the world within us.

This workshop is free for university students!
