Event Description

What we're doing next

Forum Theater Facilitator Training 2012 - Participants will experience the process of creating Forum Theater plays while practicing facilitation and brainstorming new ways to integrate the work into their own communities. For more info, see attached brochure and contact nh@newhavenleon.org  as soon as possible. And if interested, let us know preferences of when to hold the training  this Spring.


Theater of the Oppressed is an interactive, physical and playful tool used to investigate situations in which we are denied our basic rights. We use theatrical debate, through games and scenes, to uncover the many possible alternatives to these real life challenges.  By imagining solutions together onstage, we prepare ourselves to take action offstage.  Every person is an actor in his or her own life: absolutely no theater experience is necessary.

What we've done 

In June 2011, more than 60 members of the New Haven community witnessed, learned, or led theater games with Theatre of the Oppressed NYC director Katy Rubin, culminating in Forum Theater plays in which we acted out strategies for creating justice in our own lives and New Haven communities. In August 2011, seven Connecticut teachers, students, and activists traveled to New Haven’s sister city of Leon, Nicaragua to participate in a Forum Theater training with Katy and 30+ Nicaraguans, this one entirely in Spanish and dealing with stories of oppression in the rural community of Goyena. In October 2011, we performed the bilingual play A Peasant of El Salvador for New Haven audiences.
