On the Job

Customized Theater for the Workplace

Mixed Blood’s Customized Theater program creates dynamic, tailor-made theater to address issues of inclusion in the public and private sectors. The workplace is a principal arena of interaction for people of broad cultural and socio-economic differences, and is often the center point for important policy decisions that affect the way that business is conducted and customers/constituents are served.

Using the language and traditions of live theatre—music, dance, comedy, and satire—the tailor-made plays, produced by and with artists of color, provoke awareness and provide skill building opportunities that help employees and workplaces confront barriers to personal and business success.

Mixed Blood’s recent work includes creation of four new plays with HealthPartners’ Equitable Care Collaborative on the topic of health care disparities in Hmong, Latino, Somali and African American communities. Mixed Blood also presented “Black Box CME,” a continuing medical education program for hospitalists from the Allina system.

Continuing Legal Education

In addition to tailor-made plays, Mixed Blood offers Continuing Legal Education that explore legal precedence around issues of disability, sexual orientation, race, and sexual harassment.  Led by attorney/actor Chris Carlson of Narrative Pros, the two programs Hollywood Lens on Lawyering and Bench Bias Lingo use live theatre, film, panel discussions and conversation to advance understanding of ethics and bias elimination.  Past clients of Continuing Legal Education have included corporate counsel from Medtronic, Target, Best Buy, 3M and Cargill.
