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

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.
