“The theatre itself is not revolutionary: it is a rehearsal for the revolution.” - Augusto Boal (Creator of Theatre of the Oppressed techniques).

In this workshop, we will use tools from Theatre of the Oppressed to explore issues of peace and militarization. We will seek new ways to relate to and take action on these issues, which can seem distant to us in Aotearoa.

This workshop is a way out of our heads and into physical and creative space to find new ways of understanding and working for peace. The only experience with living is required, an openness to question, play and to be challenged helps! (No acting/theatre background needed).

Theatre of the Oppressed is an arsenal of theatre techniques and games that seeks to motivate people, restore true dialogue, and create space for participants to rehearse taking action. It begins with the idea that everyone has the capacity to act in the “theatre” of their own lives; everybody is at once an actor and a spectator.

Theatre of the Oppressed offers arts-based strategy-developing exercises that foster collaboration and community-led engagement.
