Kate Rubin, Theatre Artist and Consultant
Join us on March 23rd at 7:00 PM in the Duderstadt Center Basement for an informative and engaging keynote speech with Kate Rubin, an experienced and accomplished theatre artist known for her dynamic leadership and collaborative approach.

She has been working with William Head on Stage (WHoS) for the past 17 years, the longest-standing prison theatre company in Canada. WHoS is one of the theatre companies highlighted in Ashley Lucas’s book Prison Theatre and the Global Crisis of Incarceration (Methuen Drama 2021).

Kate will share her distinct perspective on the impact that this work has had on the men, the audiences, the institution, and herself as a facilitator. She will delve into the creative process that she and her colleagues have developed over the years and discuss the challenges and successes of this work.

Don't miss this opportunity to gain insight into the world of prison theatre and its ability to foster specific skills, establish connections, cultivate empathy and understanding, and promote personal growth and expression. Discover this innovative prison theatre company run by the men themselves.

Presented with support from the Prison Creative Arts Project, U-M Residential College, and Center for World Performance Studies.
