Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights

Summer Theater Intensive

The Speak Truth To Power Theater Program merges human rights education with social justice theater to address the realities of oppression and create tools for liberation. Through Ariel Dorfman’s play Speak Truth To Power: Voices From Beyond the Dark, students will learn and perform the stories of Human Rights Defenders who are changing our world. Students will also learn about different forms of social justice theater with a focus on street theatre – a powerful tool for raising awareness as it provokes audiences to discuss difficult and controversial issues. The week will culminate with a performance of a play developed by students in public spaces.

This free program is open to high school and college students.
