Using Theater to Solve Problems
We are born into a story. Seema directs stories on stage, online, and in film which ignite the imagination, illuminate ideas, validate, challenge, and open the potential to solve problems. Learn more about Seema’s directing work for theaters, think tanks, and communities here.
Consensus organizing is the methodology to reach beyond the traditional audience and use the theater to spark collaborations that disrupt polarization and build communities of mutual self-interest to solve problems together. Learn more here.
From climate change, to empathy, to solutions to the current syndemic, Seema’s R&D work improves and expands the ideas and practice of theater to serve the broader society. Learn more here.
