Theatre of the Oppressed combines images, sounds, movements and dialogue into ideas and actions for making social change. For 5 weeks this winter, we focus on the topics of race and racism. We aim to create a safe space where participants can speak their own truth and start to do the important work of unlearning the systemic racism we’ve been taught our entire lives. We hope to offer people healing from their racial privileges and oppressions while also giving them a starting point to make the structural and personal changes that can undo racism in ourselves, our communities and our world. Each 2-hour session will mix theatrical games and techniques with discussion supplemented by take-home readings and practical assignments to be enacted in everyday life.
There’s a pay-what-you-wish intro class on Monday, January 28th from 7 to 9pm. The series runs the following 5 Mondays (February 4th through March 4th) at the same time. Series participants must be able to attend all 5 weeks, and must pre-register before February 1st by emailing “email@example.com” or call 215-730-0982. Series tuition is sliding scale, $45-$95. Worktrade is available upon request.
