The five day Workshop engages deeply in the basics of Theatre for Living, which has grown from Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed. Participants will learn how to facilitate “Cops in the Head” and “Rainbow of Desire” and reflect on how this is applicable for their own work. “Cops in the Head” and “Rainbow of Desire” are two techniques that were developed by Augusto Boal which use the symbolic language of theatre to identify, analyze and respond to internalized forms of oppression. Internal voices, desires and also fears often shape and determine our decisions in daily life. What are the dynamics at play here?
Reclaiming Hope from a culture of fear
– an intimate evening of theatre… without a play

Participants will have the opportunity to understand both the mechanics and philosophy of these powerful exercises. This workshop is for people who want to implement the techniques in their respective work context and disciplines such as education, peace and conflict transformation, community building, theatre pedagogy, drama therapy, politics, and social and political activism.
In extraordinary financial circumstances there is the possibility to participate on a reduced fee (in this case please contact Lena Drummer)
