CORE 585-14 Street Dialogue on Violence: Intro into Theater of
the Oppressed

An experiential afternoon workshop using street theater to engage
the local community in dialogues about violence in all of its
varied forms. We will use an approach inspired by the Brazilian
writer, politician and activist Augusto Boal who created Theater
of the Oppressed. This method of generating social change uses
theatrical techniques to construct collaborative community
dialogues and to empower those experiencing oppression. This will
be an educational experiment where we will try to gain a clearer
picture of how violence is viewed and understood outside of
academia.
