Being an environmental activist is an essential life challenge!
This time together will offer those engaged a human laboratory to study and rehearse our actions in this cause. Using the language of theatre and the toolbox of the Theatre of the Oppressed* we will resourcefully exchange perspectives and struggles to formulate strategies for the complicated truths of our battleground. "If you don't DO anything different, there won't BE anything different!" Augusto Boal
* “Theatre of the Oppressed” describes theatrical forms elaborated by the Brazilian theatre practitioner and activist Augusto Boal. Boal was influenced by his work with educator/theorist Paulo Freire, and his techniques use theatre as a means of promoting social and political change. Recognizing that humans have a unique ability to take action in the world while simultaneously observing themselves in action, Boal believed that because we can observe ourselves in action, we can amend and alter our actions to have different impact and to change our world. Participants utilize interactive techniques providing a framework for the development and evolution of stronger ideas. Workshop will be facilitated by Eve Silber.
