Drama for Critical Action

Levana Saxon of Youth in Focus, and I collaborated with Mind Power Collective to offer this facilitators training titled "Drama for Critical Action: Theatre of the Oppressed and Hip Hop Theatre for Educators"
The workshop brought together a talented group of youth workers, community organizers, educators and artists. Right off the bat, the participants were animated in their use of movement, rhythm and language to grapple with critical issues like: gentrification, immigration, sexual violence, and racism to name a few.
Collaborating with Levana gave this workshop a different flavor than other facilitators trainings I've offered. For example, we included some material about Forum Theatre in the true sense of Augusto Boal's vision (as well as some remixed versions). If you'd like a pdf copy of the handout from this workshop, email me at evan.hastings@gmail.com
