Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) is a set of techniques, games & practices for using theater as a vehicle for transforming individuals and their communities, and effecting social and political change. It is a method of harnessing the theatrical process as a powerful tool for healing communities and breaking cycles of oppression; resulting in empowered and engaged individuals and groups that have the tools to dialogue, educate, problem-solve, and effect change. TO is a collective, creative, whole-brained problem-posing/solving technique of learning and transformation.
Prof. Jiwon Chung, a student of Augusto Boal, the creator of Theatre of the Oppressed, is faculty at Starr King School for the Ministry, at the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley. He has been teaching theater and activism around the world for over 3 decades.For more information, please call 510-499-1839.
