Rainbows of Desires
Tuesday 13 November 2018
The workshop is open to anyone who is interested in exploring oppression through theatre for behaviour and social change. It’s useful for teachers and educators, therapists, social workers, psychologists, youth workers, creative facilitators and mental health professionals who work with disadvantaged populations, and for community activists and organizers who are involved with marginalized constituencies and constituencies which have traditionally been the victims of bias, discrimination, police abuse and systemic disempowerment.
· Investigate how oppressions are submerged into everyday life and how can we expose and take control of these oppressions whilst discovering and understanding its origins.
· Confront the obstacles to their realization and witness a variety of potential solutions.
· Develop a capacity to balance empathy for the oppressed within the oppressor with a capacity to name and act against oppression.
· Identify your behavioural masks and practise taking them on and off. By moving from mask to mask you can create a useful critical distance.
17th & 18th November 10.00am - 5.00pm in Vauxhall
