Subject: [NYCGA Internet] Re: Theater of the Oppressed Wkshps for OWS
I would say just show up and do your thing! As far as getting it onto the schedule on the website, I will copy the Internet Group and hopefully they can get it by then. We're all still figuring this out - work in progress so please be patient. If nothing else, the info booths with know about it and can pass along info. I would suggest coming to the square tomorrow and Wed and flyering for it.

My colleague Marie-Claire of the Brecht Forum and I would like to offer:
Theater of the Oppressed
Thursday 10/13 at 3pm
meet at the steps
Theater of the Oppressed is a tool for building group, challenging power and practicing transformation.
This workshop focuses on exercises and games, and improvised scene work from the Theater of the Oppressed repertory developed by Brazilian director, popular educator and
Workers Party activist Augusto Boal. Boal's interactive approach to theatrical expression emphasizes physical dialogs, non-verbal imagery, consensus-building and problem-solving processes, and techniques for developing awareness of both external and internalized forms of oppression.
I believe that all the truly revolutionary theatrical groups should transfer to the people the means of production in the theater so that the people themselves may utilize them. The theater is a weapon, and it is the people who should wield it." --Augusto Boal, The Theater of the Oppressed
