Project description:

About the project:

The participants will be trained in different theatrical techniques: Forum Theatre, Image Theatre, Invisible Theatre, Rainbow of Desire, etc.

The participants will reflect on the benefits of this tool: what can this participatory and social tool bring to our daily lives as European citizens? In our individual and collective relationships?

More specifically, we will be interested in the notion of “crisis”: “migratory crisis”, “economic crisis”, “health crisis”, etc. How can we regain our power to act in the face of this bleak future for us, young Europeans? How can we show resilience in the face of the political crisis that surrounds us? These are the lines of thought that we will propose to the participants, using the  powerful transformative tool that is the Theatre of the Oppressed.

The planned activities are all related to theatrical learning. The activities are designed so that the participants are learning by doing. Throughout the course, while learning the different techniques of the Theatre of the Oppressed, participants will create a Forum Theatre play that will be performed in a local place at the end of the project.

Who? Youth workers over 18 years old from 6 different countries (France, Spain, Czech Republic, Italy, Lithuania and Romania).

What? Discover and practice Theatre of the Oppressed, a social linking tool that stimulates community dialogue and conflict resolution.
