Theatre of the Oppressed NYC

Theatre of the Oppressed is an interactive, physical and playful tool that can help us observe, understand and transform our lives. We use theatrical debate, through games and improvisational scenes, to uncover the many possible alternatives to the real life challenges that we face. By imagining and rehearsing solutions together onstage, we prepare ourselves to take action offstage! Theatre of the Oppressed empowers the participants to become catalysts for change in their own communities. Every human being is an actor in his or her own life: absolutely no theatre experience necessary.
