IMAGE THEATRE is a branch of Theatre of the Oppressed rooted in the language of the human body. By sharpening our ability to "speak" this language, we can collectively communicate things that are too often lost in the language of words alone. Image Theatre workshops use a trust-building group process to tackle tough issues and challenge ourselves while having fun.

IMAGE THEATRE ON GENTRIFICATION will use popular education tools and our first-hand experiences to create pictures, movement, sound and dialogue about gentrification, culminating in action steps that we can take on as a community to move forward without trampling others underfoot. To participate, please pre-register by calling 215-730-0982, or email tophilly@gmail.com. The workshop will start promptly at 11am. Please wear comfortable clothes and bring a lunch.

*This event is co-sponsored by Mariposa Food Co-op's Food Justice and Anti-Racism Working Group. Pre-registration is requested. Call 215-730-0982 or email tophilly@gmail.com to reserve a spot.


**Part 1 of this Gentrification Forum was a screening of Flag Wars, a film documenting what happened when an influx of European-American gay couples began moving into in a mostly African-American neighborhood in Columbus, Ohio. Though we will be touching on some of the issues brought up in Flag Wars, one need not have seen the film to participate in the Image Theatre workshop.
