Introduction to Theatre of Liberation - Andy Dolling

For justice and freedom! Through the use of dramatic games investigate ideas of oppression/ liberation in an embodied way. Play games to co-create possible new realities and understand old forms of control that are unconsciously preventing us from achieving freedom. Come and embrace solidarity and endless potential in ourselves, each other and the world!

Based on the work of Augusto Boal "Theatre of the Oppressed", this workshop uses theatre to work towards creating social justice & freedom for participants and our communities. Employing our bodies, voices, movement & fun participants will actively engage with each other to reconstruct their role in society as agents of change in our society.

Suitable for: all ages

Duration: 90 minutes

Presenter: Andy Dolling


Bio

Andy is an educator and traveler who is passionate about using theatre and movement for social & political change. A student of Giovanni Fussetti (Physical theatre, Clown, Mask) & Julien Boal (Theatre of the Oppressed) & Marc Weinblatt (Theatre of the Oppressed) he believes that their teachings can dramatically motivate and construct positive change in our world. He has been facilitating Theatre of Liberation at the Prana Festival (Coromandel), Conscious Roots Hui Festiva (Hongoeka) as well as various hui, community groups, secondary schools and events around North Island. All of these workshops have be well received as people really want to be involved in dramatic exploration of how their community and our society is and how we want it to be.

Luminate for me:

"The need to form solidarity groups to have a more meaning say politically, socially & culturally! Political discourse needs to be fun, creative, engaging and sustainable. I want to offer the skills and games that I have so that people can take them back to their own communities!"
 

Volunteer applications are now open !
