"Catharsis Productions also provides innovative lectures, program consultation and training programs that support the Catharsis Productions mission of reducing gender-based violence and empowering communities to create cultures that challenge corrosive gender and racial norms. Programs include engaging keynote lectures, small group workshops, and multi-session institutes that focus on improving the teaching and curriculum-design abilities of violence prevention advocates.

While these programs are not explicitly “theatrical”, they are all high-energy  presentations, employing humor, audience engagement, and a dynamic style that inspire audiences. Each is also research-driven and aligned with best practices: our presenters and teachers bring extensive practical and academic experience to all of the work we do. Our programs have both style and substance.
