Disobedient Theatre: a toolkit for change!
This training is aimed at grassroots change-makers from all walks of life, who want to use creative and disobedient theatre to bring about change. The workshop will equip you to:

* Take artistic, daring, imaginative actions to help your campaigns and projects broaden their audience, gain media attention and have bigger impact.

* Use practical, movement-based exercises with your groups to generate creative ideas and actions.

* Use a Sites of Intervention analysis to determine the most strategic sites for creative resistance.

* Respond to opposition and work through conflict in your groups using theatre techniques.

This workshop fuses Theatre of the Oppressed, and Beautiful Trouble practice with techniques used by South African activist educators at Tshisimani Centre for Activist Education, to create an interactive deep-dive into strategic, creative, cultural resistance. It is experiential, and comprised of a variety of movement-based group exercises (please wear comfortable clothing!)

There are only 30 places on the training so please book early to avoid disappointment.
