In the second decade of the 21st century, we live in an increasingly polarizing and complex world where Global events (and how they are “told to us”) undermine our capacity to truly understand and care for the world. “Back to Earth” integrates insights from Social Presencing Theatre and Theory U to add a self-reflective layer to Augusto Boal’s (Theatre of the Oppressed) Newspaper Theatre techniques. It invites trust in the body’s wisdom and critical self-reflection.
