Theatre for Living has evolved from Brazilian Director Augusto Boal's ‘Theatre of the Oppressed’. It is a way of communicating and working with people so that the 'living community' can tell its stories. Theatre for Living techniques have been applied to mainstream theatre, interdisciplinary work, personal, community and team development, anti-racism and violence prevention, environmental action, education and counselling. Using a symbolic language, participants develop ‘emotional intelligence’, move towards open communication and begin to create their desired realities in an active and entertaining way.

This workshop is specifically designed for theatre-makers and community workers. The two-day workshop will explore Image Theatre and the evolution of Rainbow of Desire and their applicability in reconciliation issues and as tools to foster dialogue and interaction between disparate groups of people.
This training will be invaluable for anyone who seeks skills and techniques to use theatrical language to explore community dialogue.
Cost: $200 for two days
