We have moved to www.facebook.com/denvertheatreoftheoppressed Please find us there or email totodenver55@gmail.com to be added to our mailing list. Thanks to all,
Viva la Revolution!! 

Theatre of the Oppressed was originally created by Augusto Boal as an arsenal of theater techniques and games which seek to motivate people, restore true dialogue, and create space for participants to rehearse taking action. It begins with the idea that everyone has the capacity to act in the “theater” of their own lives; we are each at once an actor and a spectator. We are “spect-actors!” — a term which Boal coined. 

The core of our meetings is to work to understand oppression fully -- to be able to face it directly, talk about it, and work to change it. 


Who should join: Activists who see the connection between art and community. Performers, producers, writers, art makers and community members alike; those willing to dedicate themselves to self-exploration and the exchange of ideas. 


Why you should join: If you have a desire for activism and an interest in self-development, you love performance but are looking beyond comedy improv or standard theater, this is the group for you. Connect on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/DenverTheatreoftheOppressed/?fref=ts


What members can expect:  Our exercises involve a lot of fun and play, but we also get deep into personal and societal topics. Our main goal is to create performances which call for public attention to oppression and it's possible solutions. Theatre and improv training, required reading, current event discussion, personal sharing and writing.
