Theater of the Oppressed Training for English Speakers
at Center for Theater of the Oppressed (CTO)
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Dec 11-22, 2017

Theater of the Oppressed (T.O.) is a theater methodology created by Augusto Boal that equips and empowers oppressed people to transform society through art. The Center for T.O. (CTO), located in Rio de Janeiro, was founded by Augusto Boal in 1986. CTO is one of the homes of T.O. and is at the forefront of continuing social justice work through theater. In December 2017 CTO will hold a T.O. training specifically for English-speakers. The 2 weeklong program will include an in-depth introduction to the methodology and rigorous facilitation training guided by veteran CTO jokers. The end goal of the program is for participants to be able to incorporate T.O. into their on- going work back home as teachers, activists, artists and community organizers.
