Theater of Situations is a mixed media presentation, exhibit, demonstration and game participation event, devised by IAS Professor Kanta Kochhar-Lindgren and students in the course, Theatre of Situations: Games as Workshop, Games as Performance during Winter Quarter.  This event takes place on Tuesday Feb. 14 6:00pm-8:00pm in the North Creek Events Center.

The program begins with an introduction to and demonstration of creativity, improvisation, and games. The second part is an opportunity to try out discipline-specific games (Nursing, Computing, Business and Global Studies) created and run by the students. The third part is a campus-wide game called Theater of Situations. Audience members can watch a live video stream of the game in North Creek Events Center, follow the student teams around campus as they race to complete the relay, or participate in a side event called “Eccentric Showcase” that will occur at the same time.”
