THEATRE OF THE OPPRESSED is used by groups of people to dismantle dynamics of oppression in our world. Unlike other dramatic forms that divide spectator from actor, everyone in Theater of the Oppressed is a "spect-actor" in workshops that serve as rehearsals for the performance of everyday life.

THE RAINBOW OF DESIRE is a genre of Theatre of the Oppressed techniques that take apart our interactions with others and put them back together in different ways. In daily life, these interactions can involve friends, family, lovers or others that we encounter in the places where we work, teach, learn or live; In the workshop, participants play the roles of these characters, dealing with each other in different and creative ways. This transformative 5-hour workshop will begin with games and exercises that build up to putting difficult relationship moments onstage and viewing them through a new lens. With this information the group will work to unearth hidden roots of oppression and break the frustrating cycles that we fall into. No prior theatre experience is required.
