About this Event
Stepping Stones Creatives presents ‘They Do Not Listen! What Do You Say? They Do Not Care!’ with Julian Boal
Theatre of The Oppressed is the umbrella term for a type of theatre created by the innovative and influential practitioner Augusto Boal.
This one-day workshop, through games, exercises and techniques, will focus on finding ways to demonstrate how Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) can be a tool for the emergence of ‘voice’ for individuals who feel they are not being heard. In enabling their voice, TO also offers an opportunity to explore alternative responses through a shared response. The workshop is a practical experience of how TO operates, aimed for those people who have little or no experience to practitioners. The workshop is inclusive in nature working in large and small groups.
Julian Boal is a teacher, researcher and practitioner of Theatre of the Oppressed. He has facilitated workshops in more than 25 countries and has collaborated on several international festivals of Theatre of the Oppressed: in India with Jana Sanskriti, in Spain with Pa’tothom, in Portugal with Óprima, in Croatia with the Istrian National Theatre, in France with GTO-Paris, and in Brazil with CTO-Rio. Some other groups and movements with whom he has worked closely include MST (the Landless Workers Movement) and MSTB (the Roofless Movement of Bahia) in Brazil and La Dignidad In Argentina.
This workshop is FREE and bought to you in partnership with Stepping Stones Creatives at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Grand Hall. Lunch not provided. Please bring your own food and drink.
