Theatre of the Oppressed

In this workshop, students will learn how to use theatre to make sense of difficult life situations and gain the strength and confidence to deal with circumstances of injustice in their personal life, school, family setting or local community. Participants will develop their critical thinking, team-building and problem-solving capabilities by acting out rather than just talking about challenging episodes that happen to people in their daily routines.

The workshop includes an introduction to Augusto Boal’s methodology through games and group exercises to develop the physical senses, rhythms, sounds, space awareness, relationships, memory, emotions and imagination.
