What is Social Drama?

Adventures in Social Development (ASD) reaches and assists individuals through Role-Play Theatre Analysis (RTA). Dialogue created through RTA utilizes elements of visual and emotional awareness. RTA, coupled with the reflexive thinking process, integrates function, emotion, and imagination to validate others’ ideas and challenge conventional wisdom; moving participants into action to become agents of change within their communities.

Participants experience familiar success while using interactive drama as the catalyst to influence and change lives. RTA enables the individual to transform their reality through the arts; leading to a healthier sense of self as the individual participants become the playwright as well as the director of their own lives.
