Rehearsals for Change

George Emilio Sanchez

This workshop integrates theater games and exercises from Augusto Boal’s Theater of the Oppressed with writing and drawing. Our critical aim is to nurture and develop trust among the participants. First, trust within our physical body, the five senses, our emotional landscape, and the reach of the imagination. Secondly, nurturing trust among the participants in building a collective identity. The deeper we can trust ourselves, the greater we can trust each other and the group.
