Playing with Power: An Image Theatre Intensive

DATE CHANGE—3 Mondays: Nov 3, 10 and 17 • 7 to 9 p.m.
at the Rotunda • 4014 Walnut Street • West Philly
—series closed to new participants—

Like iconic photographs from history, Theatre of the Oppressed uses still images to highlight systems of power and ignite dialogues around contentious issues. In this three-part series we will play “The Great Game of Power”, a technique for sculpting images out of everyday objects to illustrate conflicts and struggles faced by those around us. When we add ourselves as actors into the picture, scenes spring to life as debates between people and politicians, friends and neighbors, and family members who can’t quite see eye-to-eye. We’ll enrich this work with some readings and discussions and create opportunities to carry our scenarios not just to the stage, but to the actual people and places embroiled in conflict.
