Sheatre Presents: The Spring Workshop Series: explore different techniques and exercises from Augusto Boal’s ‘Theatre of the Oppressed’ (Owen Sound, ON)
“Spring is a time of growth and renewal, have you made your own personal growth and renewal plans?
Sheatre is here with fun and creative help. This spring, Sheatre’s Artistic Director Joan Chandler will lead the Spring Workshop Series, a series of experiential workshops in Owen Sound open to interested participants of all experience levels. This series will actively explore different techniques and exercises from Augusto Boal’s ‘Theatre of the Oppressed’ where interactive theatre and improvisation are used as a tool to promote positive social change and personal development. This isn’t therapy; they’re informative training workshops. Taken individually or as a whole the Spring Workshop Series is ideal for community workers, counselors, educators, performers, directors, activists, social change advocates and anyone interested in Sheatre’s mission to use theatre and the arts to empower individuals and contribute to a healthy, compassionate society.”
