Feedback form is now closed.
This workshop engages participants in an active reflection on a piece of visual art through embodied practice based on Theatre of the Oppressed techniques. Through collective brainstorming and image analysis, participants will reflect on the themes and stories present within specific art pieces in the gallery. This interactive workshop honors each individual’s lived experience, using image creation to unleash our body-knowledge. In this workshop you will learn from yourself as well as the rest of the participants and the facilitator, leading to powerful reflections and community building.

The workshop will include the following Theatre of the Oppressed activities: Individual Sculpting, the Game of Power, and Group Sculpting. All exercises will be followed by reflection and story-sharing.
