The sixth conversation in our second series of What Now for the Theatre of the Oppressed conversations will be live on Cardboard Citizens’ Facebook and Youtube at 6pm BST / 5pm UTC on Wednesday 28 July 2021.
What Now For the Theatre of the Oppressed? Conversations with TO Practitioners will welcome leading global practitioners of Theatre of the Oppressed – Augusto Boal’s methods for combining theatre and activism – and ask them the place each practitioner sees their work and the methodology occupying in the future.
The conversations will be hosted by Adrian Jackson , Cardboard Citizens’ Artistic Director and translator of Augusto Boal’s work into English. The practitioners come from all over the globe – including Colombia, Mozambique, Guatemala and Jerusalem – offering us fascinating insights into theatre’s role in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
For theatre practitioners, students, and those interested in using the arts for social change, these conversations will open new, exciting and vital connections between the performing arts and a recovering world.
The series will continue at 6pm BST / 5pm UTC fortnightly on Wednesdays. Watch our social media for more information about upcoming conversations, and subscribe to YouTube or Facebook to hear when we go live.
