Ispirato alle idee di Paulo Freire, il TdO nascein Brasile a partire dagli anni ‘60 in un clima di lotte operaie e contadine. In origine questo metodo era un mezzo per renderecoscienti le persone rispetto ai conflitti sociali. Nel suo passaggio in Europa il teatro dell’oppresso è statoutilizzato per lavorare sui conflitti personali. Il teatro e la recitazionehanno qui il fine di rappresentare le oppressioni quotidiane conl’intento di trovare strategie per la trasformazione dei conflitti. Uno dei motivi della popolarità del TdO è l’idea di attivare lo spettatore ponendolo al centro del lavoro teatrale, al fine di includere differenti rappresentazioni della realtà ed esplorarnepossibili trasformazioni in forma creativa e socializzata.

Theatre of the Oppressed workshop facilitated by Hector Aristizabal Rome: 25/26/27 november Palestra Popolare c/o Centro sociale Spartaco via Treviri (nearest metro station Numidio Quadrato)
Theatre of the Oppressed is a way of practicing theatre that brings together different techniques, which have been systematized by the Brazilian director Augusto Boal. The aim of such theatre is to provide the tools for personal, social and political change for anyone who is living through situations of oppression. Inspired by the ideas of Paulo Freire, the Theatre of the Oppressed was created in Brazil in the 60s during a period of workers’ and peasants’ protests. At the beginning this method was used as a means to increase people’s awareness of social conflicts.During its European developments (when Boal had fled to France due to the dictatorship in Brazil), the Theatre of the Oppressed was also used to explore and work on personal/interior conflicts. The theatrical scenes and improvisations here have the objective of representing the daily oppressions that have the aim to find strategies for transforming conflicts.
One of the reasons why Theatre of the Oppressed is so popular is the idea of activating the spectators by placing them at the centre of the theatrical work, in order to include as many different representations of reality as possible and explore possible transformations in a creative and social form.
Hector Aristizábal was born and raised in Colombia, where he studied theatre and psychology in the University of Antioquia.
He survived the tortures of the army and was forced to seek refuge in the USA.
Thanks to theatre he managed to transform his trauma and his desire for vengeance into social constructive action.
Taking inspiration from his life experiences, his theatrical and therapeutic competencies, his work nowadays is applied to a variety of different contexts, from schools to prisons, in situations of social unrest:
with victims of torture and of sexual discrimination, with political activists, social operators and migrants.
He founded ImaginAction to share his method with other groups of people all over the US, in Latin America and other countries such as Afghanistan, Israel and India.
The workshop is an intensive training organized in three consecutive days:
Friday 25th November 9.30am to 6pm
Saturday 26th November 9.30am to 8pm
Sunday 27th November 9.30am to 8pm
