Introduction to Theatre of the Oppressed

Sponsored by the GALE Fund of the Cape Cod Foundation

In this workshop Ellie Friedland will lead participants through Boal’s basic games and exercises designed for actors and non-actors alike, in an atmosphere of fun, play and critical reflection. Theatre of the Oppressed games, exercises, and Image Theatre work, emphasize physical dialogues, non-verbal imagery, problem-solving processes, and techniques for developing awareness of both external and internalized forms of oppression. Image Theater is a powerful tool for developing dialogue, critical thinking, and group coherence. It uses the actor’s body to create images that help participants explore power relations and group solutions to concrete problems.

The educational programs offered at CCTC|HJT are brought to you in part by Seaside LeMans, The Race for the Cape Cod Community.
