THEATRE OF THE OPPRESSED is used by groups of people to address dynamics of oppression in our world. Counter to traditional dramatic forms where there is a division between spectator and actor, everyone in Theater of the Oppressed is a "spect-actor" in workshops that serve as rehearsals for the performance of everyday life.

COP IN THE HEAD is a Theatre of the Oppressed technique that deals with internalized oppression. Whenever we stop ourselves from doing what want to do or saying what we need to say, there may be discouraging voices and experiences from our past that hinder our actions. In this workshop, we’ll take these “cops” out of our heads and deal with them one by one, with the aim of disarming them altogether. No prior theatre experience required.
