Saturday, April 13th & Sunday, April 14th
2:00pm - 5:00pm
Free, donations welcome
You're welcome to attend one or both days!

From the invite: "Augusto Boal, a Brazilian theatre practitioner from Sao Paulo, created the Theatre of the Oppressed, which is a form of theatre that seeks to facilitate dialogue and discussion about issues of social inequality. Through the use of various techniques, such as Forum theatre, the workshop is designed to bring about a debate/ discussion about any social justice issue that the group, as a collective, decides to undertake. The workshop will begin with basic warm up games and exercises and then we will start discussing what kind of topics we would like to select for our theatrical discussion. "

"The theatre of the oppressed allows groups of individuals to openly debate and discuss various solutions, or ideas of improvement, to situations that directly affect their lives. Please join us at the Peacehouse for a day of social commentary using theatre as a tool for fun and interactive discussion!" Note, there will be two workshops, and you are welcome to attend one, or both.
