Improv Theater and Whiteness in Education: A Systematic Literature ReviewTanner, S. J., & McCloskey, A. - 2022 - Review of Educational Research, 00346543221076885
Improv theater has expanded beyond a popular American form of entertainment into an educational experience for students and teachers. It may be difficult to imagine that an interactive, joyful, and collaborative improv workshop might be harmful, but our own experiences as professional improvisers led us to observe that even well-intentioned, antiracist improv theater interventions tend to reflect Whiteness more than democratic values. We investigate this observation through a systematic...
