DESCRIPTION: Join us for an engaging and interactive event as Conflict Theatre presents the Spring Forum Theatre Performance! This event is open to all UBC faculty and staff and promises to be a unique and thought-provoking experience. Our talented troupe of UBC faculty and staff will showcase an original play surfacing conflict dynamics relevant to the UBC context. As an audience member, you will witness these conflicts unfold, then engage with your peers and the performers in shaping alternate outcomes for their resolution. This is not a passive experience, so come ready to learn, think critically, and be entertained!
