Transcript

  • 1. Re-writing the Script: Theater and Social Change
  • 2. Scenarios of theater-based approaches:
    • AIDS education in Africa
    • Women’s Incarceration
    • Immigration
    • These scenarios include notions of social scripts that limit the options that people have in dealing with conflict situations . Theater is used as an interactive tool for people to explore solutions , share stories, and raise awareness . ACTION is theater’s core. In exploring different courses of ACTION we can change the script that conditions our responses in real-life situations.

  • 4. Theater of the Oppressed
    • Every human being “is theater” We have the capacity to “act” and to “watch ourselves acting”
    • In traditional theater, actors perform in our behalf. In TO we take ownership of actions and propose transformations to a scene.
  • 5. Principles of TO
    • Everybody performs
    • No actors/ spectators (”spect-actors”)
    • Theater as a language “Speak in theater”
    • Theater as a rehearsal for the revolution (prototyping the future) (“ I did it in on stage” includes “I did it”)
