Anita Woodley is an award-winning actress, playwright, producer, musician, poet, and journalist. She also is a certified HIV counselor and advocate for many healthcare initiatives. One powerful way that Anita communicates is with ethnodramas—non-traditional theatrical performances based on ethnographic research data used to educate, promote, and prevent harmful practices to overall health.
In this podcast, Helen Osborne talks with Anita Woodley about:
- How theatric performances can communicate health messages in meaningful, memorable, and culturally relevant ways.
- Examples of using characters, language, and laughter to teach about health.
- Woodley’s suggestions about ways everyone (not just actors) can be authentic and inform those we care about, and care for.
