WHAT IS APPLIED THEATRE?
The workshop will explore the use of chorus to find social voice and look at how physical dynamics can be used to illuminate and build upon Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed. Through practical physical exercises workshop participants embody social actions, power dynamics and interrogate how the chorus can speak of and to society. Moving beyond Augusto Boal, we will ask how performance and audience engagement can activate change? Provocation, alienation and discovery will be strong themes, but as creativity of the performer is at the centre of this work, the thematic direction will be defined by the group in the end.
WHAT WILL THE INSTRUCTOR FOCUS ON?
Melissa will draw upon her practice applying theatre for development whilst working in Sub Saharan Africa and South East Asia, and share an approach that combines physical play, forum theatre, social change and activism.
WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?
