Make Theatre — Make a Difference

WSI’s applied theatre-making process provides a space for exploration, interaction and collaboration with participants from vastly different cultures and backgrounds. We bring people together to question assumptions, engage in problem-solving dialogue, experiment with biases, improvise collective ideas and, most importantly, create fabulous theatre.

Our goal is not only to share what we’ve learned and created, but to offer ways for others to devise aesthetically provocative, socially challenging theatre anywhere with anyone in almost any situation. Visit About to find out more of what we are up to!

Creating Community Conversation: Weekend Residency in Chattanooga, Tennessee

On August 3, we’re taking our Field Guide on the road to Chattanooga, Tennessee for an intensive four-day residency, Creating Community Conversations. Co-sponsored by the Chattanooga State Community College Theatre Department and working with local community arts and advocacy groups, the residency brings our collaborative process to facilitate dialogue and create provocative, entertaining theatre to a region that, like our country as a whole, is deeply divided along political, religious, class and racial lines. We need your support to make it happen. We hope you’ll make a tax-deductible gift to this inspiring new project and help take us to Tennessee! Click here to make your donation.

Coming Soon: New WSI Field Guide

We’re creating a new online Field Guide to WSI’s creative process. This new updated Field Guide will offer a range of exercises, creative tasks, plans, and formats that make it possible to devise aesthetically provocative, socially challenging theatre anywhere, with any one, in almost any situation. Join our mailing list to keep in the loop.
