THE THEATRE OF OPPRESSED

THE THEATRE OF OPPRESSED

Social transformation in people’s daily life.

The Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) is a method and theatre movement created by the playwright Augusto Boal at the beginning of the 70’s. When it comes to the Theatre of the Oppressed, the spectator observes the representation of existing conflicts and their taking part in the scene transforms reality; the spectator becomes consciously  and voluntarily the spectactor.

 During this course, Birgit Fritz, Ronald Matthijssen and Sanjoy Ganguly will introduce us to a model based on dramaturgy and art, compressed in the InExActArt masterpiece which shows a dialogue that enables us to create a different sensitivity on what is going on, a recapture of the language, life and surrounding world , and which defines the Theatre of the Oppressed as a reconstruction of stories (individual and collective) of internalised oppression. A theatre of dialogue, not answers, which trusts collective intelligence, which empowers community as the director of its own situation. A Theatre of everyday stories provided that life itself is merely a political issue.

“The meeting as Bella Arte, as an artistic aeffective and creactive work of personal transformation, the group and the setting”, Alex Carrascosa, 2016.
