Celebrating Life – Training for Facilitators – Senegal

November 26 @ 11:00 am - December 4 @ 11:00 am

A residential theatre workshop and journey that invites you to visit community projects and meet Senegalese Theatre of the Oppressed network. It is part of a training for facilitators program and includes an theater residency that is organized with Kaddu Yaraax Theatre group and facilitated by Uri Noy Meir.

We will meet and make theatre with local Theatre groups and practitioners from across Senegal and possibly from other African countries (last year we had one theater practitioner joining from Guinea)

In the residency we will see how theatre can inspire personal growth, regenerate community and create awareness. Engage the body in a creative and playful envisioning and enacting of the future we want to see and be in the world.  In the residential workshop you will learn, be inspired with Theatre of the Oppressed (www.theatreoftheoppressed.org) Dragon Dreaming (www.dragondreaming.org/) and Social Presencing Theatre (www.presencing.com/social-presencing-theater). In the day we play, share and create scenes that tell and retell our individual and collective
story. In the night we celebrate each other, life, and the energy of that place and time. We weave our intentions for a new beginning, unity in diversity, and of renewed bonds of our one family.

THERE are available spots for “internationals” that wish to join this unique journey to practice theatre and facilitation in Senegal.
