This workshop consists of a series of movements and song and drum rhythms from different parts of West Africa, followed by a formal instruction of a traditional dance piece, and ending with a “cookup”, where participants are able to freely express themselves. Participants should dress comfortably, be prepared to dance barefoot, and ready to have fun!

ABOUT THE FACILITATOR

Born on the island of Trinidad and Tobago, Lesley Waldron started her journey in dance at the tender age of 5. She has trained in Modern, Caribbean Folk, and African Dance. In 1993, she joined the Ghanaian group Sankofa Drum and Dance Ensemble. In the Twi language, “Sankofa” means “go back and retrieve”; which is exactly what Lesley did, travelling to Ghana in 2007 to obtain a degree in West African dance and community development.

2019 Workshops with Mixed Company Theatre: Rainbow of Desire and Masks of Manipulation! (Toronto)

« Mixed Company Theatre is excited to announce our lineup of annual workshops for artists, educators, and community leaders!

Rainbow of Desire (March 9th 2019, 10AM-5PM)

What happens when you take apart a single moment of conflict to explore every possible desired action?

In this experiential workshop led by Simon Malbogat, participants will employ Augusto Boal’s Rainbow of Desire techniques to broaden perspectives and reframe situations by focusing on the inner thoughts and impulses of the individual. Through storytelling and performance, participants will gain a deeper understanding of their conflicting and co-existing desires, which will enrich their work onstage and in community settings.

Masks of Manipulation (March 16th and 23rd 2019, 9:30AM-5:30PM)

The “Masks of Manipulation”, an invaluable character development and conflict-resolution process designed by Simon Malbogat and co-facilitated by Peter Jarvis, gives face to each of the manipulative forces we encounter both onstage and in daily life.

This workshop draws on Commedia dell’Arte-inspired masks to help participants acquire a deeper awareness of manipulation and oppression: how and why it happens, what it looks and feels like, and how to de-escalate it.
Participants will also take away from this two-day workshop a Mask of their own creation, which they will learn to use as a physical touchstone in processes ranging from character development to community mediation.

Forum Theatre Performance + Creation (July 19th and 20th 2019, 10AM-5PM)

In this all-levels workshop, we will explore how Forum Theatre techniques of participation, intervention, and improvisation can help performers, educators and community leaders build tool kits for character development, conflict resolution, and catalyzing change in their own circles.

This workshop, which acquaints participants with Augusto Boal’s pedagogy and applied theatre techniques, is a great opportunity for artists who are looking to hone their performance creation skills as well as for educators, social workers and health professionals, and any and all practitioners of community engagement.

Through learning and practicing Forum Theatre under the guidance of Simon Malbogat, participants in this workshop will receive the skills to become better facilitators, conflict resolution mediators, artists, community leaders, and more socially-aware educators.
