CELEBRATION POSSIBILITIES TRANSFORMATIONS. Theatre of the Oppressed through theory and practice, local and global perspectives

 

The method of the Theatre of the Oppressed has been implemented by the activists, educators, social workers and theatre professionals for over fifty years, thus is has – although globally recognised – been localised in various cultural environments but always as an idea, means, tools (at times also a weapon) striving for changes: changes for the better. The Theatre of the Oppressed was brought to Slovenia by a number of individuals who used it – sometimes even without being aware - rather dispersed for various reasons and various practices within other methodologies. In addition to Boal's Poetics of the Oppressed translated to Slovene for the first time, this miscellany offers a compilation of reflections and practices of both the established international educators and practitioners as well as the Slovenian younger generation that continues to eagerly and ambitiously explore the quandaries of our society. The selected contributions provide an insight into the practical applications of the Theatre of the Oppressed in work with socially excluded groups, such as prisoners, ethnic minorities and women. They tackle the issues of violence, ecology, gender identity and oppression in general.

The book was co-published by Ekvilib Institute and Maska.

Partners of the Globalna SOFA project are Zavod Voluntariat, VIDC and Zavod Humanitas. 
The publication is part of the project GLOBAL STATE OF ART: theatre for development education, co-funded by the European Union and Ljubljana Municipality.
