Come learn the skills and ideas that build up to the Cop in the Head/Rainbow of Desire techniques devised by Theatre of the Oppressed founder Augusto Boal. Sometimes called "the Boal method of theatre and therapy", these techniques take all of our inhibitions and desires and put them on stage where we can deal them in the flesh. Over the course of three Tuesdays, this group will share, embody and unpack personal stories while asking important questions about the shared goals of personal growth and social change.
