For a long time now, teaching and social science professionals have expressed to us their interest in learning new methodologies that could be applied to their work in community contexts. Theatre that has its roots in popular and community theatre, and popular education principles, is a powerful tool for this work. In Chile, the fabric of community life is very damaged. When people come together, when people relate through games and affective contact, they create the links needed to dream and activate a more caring society. No-one can resist the power of laughter; and we all like the feeling of really being listened to.
This theoretical/practical seminar -“Theatre methodologies for critical social construction”- directed by Colectivo Sustento, offers a two-day introduction to the central concepts of our methodology: theatre games, collectivity and critical social reflection. It is the first of a series of three seminars that aim to pass on some of what we have learned during many years of theatre work in community contexts. Two days of playfulness, exchange and debate that we believe will be very useful for people working in diverse Chilean communities.
The seminar will be the first training activity held in Colectivo Sustento’s workshop space in San Miguel. $30,000 pp, 20 people maximum. Registration form:
