LOCATION: Scarritt Bennett Center – International Room, Scarritt Hall 2nd Floor

EVENT DESCRIPTION: Image Theatre is one distinctive tactic within the broader repertoire of Theatre of the Oppressed. During this workshop, participants will explore the expressive capacities of their bodies leading to the creation of image sculptures that reflect situations of oppression. Through the language of theatre, participants will generate and rehearse possibilities for changing such situations. In this training for trainers, participants will acquire the necessary skills to facilitate Image Theatre interventions and will produce an intervention to be shared with the broader community of Nashville.
