Exploring the connection between theater and human rights that stretches from ancient Greece until today, this workshop led byDr. Guila Clara Kessous will give students the opportunity to use theater games to better understand the notion of the “other” in respect to human rights on stage and find new ways to raise awareness about social and humanitarian issues.

Dr. Kessous holds a State Diploma in Performing Art, an Executive MBA from ESSEC Business School, a PhD from Boston University, and a Post-Doc from Harvard University. An actor, director and producer in major theaters in the U.S. and Europe, she created the workshop at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School and at the Political Sciences Institute in Paris.
