"Branch Out" Games Workshop (Online)
Games: A Deep-Dive Into Difficultating & Debriefing
Much of Augusto Boal’s work involved taking theatre games that he already knew and using them as a social metaphor to open up a particular kind of dialogue. COVID-19 forced TONYC Jokers into similar territory: we've learned to adapt the games we already knew as well as learn new Zoom icebreakers and turn them into activities for consciousness-raising. We invite you to a two-day experience in which you’ll demo some of our favorite new online "de-mechanization" games and then train on how to make your own Theatre of the Oppressed games. We’ll also chat about what to do when things go wrong and how to plan an agenda for rehearsal or other facilitation settings.
This workshop is best suited for individuals with some experience facilitating theatre exercises. Join us at our upcoming festival for additional T.O. training and education opportunities!
Facilitated by: Julián Pimiento & amani huell
