Join us for an afternoon of creative play and deep community dialogue! Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) is a political framework and theatrical method, less about performance and more about creativity, play and exploration. TO engages people in embodied discovery, critical reflection and dialogue and the process of liberation. During this event, participants will be invited to stretch the limits of their imaginations, demechanize habitual behaviors, analyze social and political issues that are important to them and imagine a world of liberation. Take some time away from the hectic year-end and join community members as we laugh, play, explore and address critical issues together.
