E43-0-Dance/Theater Space in the factory
This is the first workshop of a series of interactive shadow theater workshops that aim to provide a body-centered and art-based approach to working with oppression. The workshop will take place on Saturday, December 10th and Sunday, December 11th from noon to 5pm.
This workshop will focus on narrating displacement and embodied experiences of forced migration. The workshop depends on interactive techniques developed and based on teachings from Augusto Boal's "Theater of The Oppressed" and shadow work practices based on Carl Jung's concept of the "shadow" using shadow theater as its artistic manifestation. The series is designed to provide a space for people to come together to express themselves and tell their narratives using the tools introduced at the workshop as means of healing and self-affirmation.
