Discover new ways of knowing yourself, others around you and the environment.
This workshop will follow a series of activities which encourage you to explore physical movement, expression and communication. These are designed to make you investigate your own sense of identity, how you relate to to other people and the physical space around you.
The supporting methodology is Augusto Boal’s Theory of the Oppressed. Boal was a Brazilian dramaturge who created this methodology in order to alter the power imbalance which exists within society through heightening self expression.
We will be using Boal’s methods as an artistic outlet, to change up our routines during these challenging times, to do something different and meet new people. Join us for some fun, some outward expression and inward reflection.
