Theater of the Oppressed is a theater activist methodology created by Augusto Boal that equips and empowers oppressed people to transform society through art. The Center for Theater of the Oppressed, located in Rio de Janeiro, was founded by Augusto Boal in 1986. It is one of the homes of Theater of the Oppressed and is at the forefront of continuing social justice work through theater. In December 2018 we will hold our annual T.O. International Training, ideal for English speakers. The 2 week-long program will include an in-depth introduction to the methodology and rigorous extensive 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. See you in December!
