UCLA Travel Study 2017: Theater of the Oppressed in Rio de Janeiro


Study at the Center for the Theater of the Oppressed (CTO) in Rio de Janeiro and experience the world-renowned methodology created by Brazilian-born Augusto Boal.

Through the use of theater games, exercises, and techniques, the CTO seeks social transformation employing art in the fight against oppression. CTO uses theater as a rehearsal space for social transformation by inviting the activation of the public who are capable of taking action.

Work directly with CTO's educators, who were trained by August Boal, and still develop the methodology in different social contexts today.

8 Units-- WL ARTS 120: Arts and Culture of Brazil & WL ARTS 120: Theater of the Oppressed
