InterPlay and Theatre of the Oppressed
Saturday, May 20, 2017, 10:30-4:30pm and Sunday, May 21, 1-4pm
InterPlay, as a worldwide community, believes in the ability to change the world through creative expression. Developed over the last twenty-seven years by Phil Porter and Cynthia Winton-Henry, InterPlay is a practice that teaches groups and individuals to tap into their artistic authority and positively affect other people.
Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) was created in the 1970s by Augusto Boal in Brazil and has become an international movement. TO uses interactive games to gain insight into dynamics of power in our relationships and in our society. He used the term “Rehearsal for Revolution,” engaging audience and participants in action and reflection.
Guest facilitator, Rebecca Kling, will also be joining us for part of the weekend. She is the Community Storytelling Advocate at the National Center for Transgender Equality and has toured her performance work across the country.
