About Rites and Reason Theater

As one of the oldest continuously producing Black theatres in the nation, the Department of Africana Studies' Rites and Reason Theatre is dedicated to giving voice to the diverse cultural expressions of the New World. Rites and Reason uses its unique Research-to-Performance Method (RPM) to develop new creative works.

Rites and Reason was founded in September 1970 by Professor George Houston Bass and became a formal component of the then Program in Afro-American Studies in 1975. Born out of the Black Arts Movement and student protests at Brown University, Rites and Reason evolved into a Research-to-Performance Method theatre. The RPM nourishes organic diversity and collaborative creativity.

Throughout its history, Rites and Reason has developed works by undergraduate and graduate students and professional playwrights who have gone on to national acclaim. In recent years, Rites and Reason has developed and produced student plays about foot binding in ancient China and the conscription of Jewish boys into the Russian Czarist Army in the 1830s.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
