Center for Theater of the Oppressed International Training Dec 2019 -- Registration Form
Dec 9-20, 2019
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

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. CTO Rio (Center for Theater of the Oppressed in Rio de Janeiro), was founded by Augusto Boal himself in 1986. CTO is one of the homes of T.O. and is at the forefront of continuing social justice work through theater. Every year, CTO holds 1-2 T.O. trainings specifically for English-speakers. The upcoming International Training will be held Dec 9-20, 2019 and 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 ongoing work back home as teachers, activists, artists and community organizers.

See you in December!
