Victoria Rhoades

Victoria Rhoades, Ph.D., is a theatre artist and teacher of movement and theatre for adolescents, professional theatre artists, and women and men of the community. In her teaching, Rhoades integrates the pedagogy developed by Shakespeare & Co. (Lenox, MA) with the relational psychology work of Carol Gilligan and colleagues such as Deborah Tolman, Lyn Mikel Brown, and Niobe Way, as well as others. Tori's research has included listening to adolescent girls, and to young women and young men as they describe their experience of this integrated teaching method. Tori seeks to create environments where students' experiences are not limited by assumptions of gender, but where young women and men share in the experience as listening, breathing human beings resonating in body, voice, and relationship with one another.
