Theatre of the Opressed


The Theatre of the Oppressed is a form of teaching developed by the Brazilian theatre practitioner Augusto Boal in the 1970s and was influenced by the work of the educator and theorist Paulo Freire. Boal’s techniques use theatre as a means of discussing social and political change by shedding light on the experience of the oppressed and how systems of oppression operate. In the Theatre of the Oppressed, the audience becomes active, such that as “spect-actors” they explore, show, analyze and transform the reality in which they are living. This workshop is offered as part of the Prevention Training Academy
