Rede Mulher (1990's)

This documentation is of a full-day Theatre of the Oppressed workshop dedicated to women. During the first part of this workshop, participants engage in several general exercises developed by Augusto Boal that can be found in his book Theatre of the Oppressed: Games for Actors and Non-Actors. Participants also learn more about Boal’s work with Arena Theatre and his work outside of Brazil.

During a brief interview, Boal explains more about the development of the Theatre of the Oppressed (from the 60s to the 80s), the difference between oppression in Latin America and in Europe, and how the Theatre of the Oppressed can be used to advance women’s rights.

In the second part of the workshop, Boal engages participants in Image Theatre exercises where they discuss and rethink oppression scenes that they develop throughout the workshop.
