Monday May 24th, 2010 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Co-sponsor: Theater of the Oppressed Laboratory
Forum Theater 1
A Theater of the Oppressed Technique
Facilitated by Julian Boal

"This first of two 3-day intensive workshops will teach exercises, games, and improvised scene work from the Theater of the Oppressed (TO) repertory, developed by the late Brazilian director, popular educator and Workers Party activist Augusto Boal. (Note: Workshop #2 will teach techniques that are not covered in this first workshop. Each workshop is designed to stand alone, and participation in the first workshop is not a pre-requisite for enrollment in workshop #2. Participants can enroll in either workshop, or both.) Boal's interactive approach to theatrical expression emphasizes physical dialogues, non-verbal imagery, consensus-building and problem-solving processes, and techniques for developing awareness of both external and internalized forms of oppression."

Forum Theater 2 takes place Thursday May 27th - May 29th
