Open workshop: Theatre Group ToTo as part of Museum of Arte Útil

15/02/2014
11:00 - 17:00

This workshop does not only concern looking at images, which is usually the case with museum visits, but also making images

We will use ourselves as an image; we’ll be like an actor that ‘freezes’. A couple of minutes the actor is paused from motion and emotion. The images that we will create are based on improvisations and themes everybody will recognize. Visitors passing by will be asked to take a position that relates to the image. What does it evoke? Which stories will it generate? Playfully we’ll explore the ‘big themes’: what does oppression look like? Or resistance, power, love or hate? The visitor will get the chance to explore how their own knowledge relates to theatrical elements; how do I cope with these themes? What am I learning, and do I want to explore the theme otherwise? The workshop-guides are ‘Theatre of the Oppresed’ practitioners. It will be a workshop with short, accessible exercises and games, enjoyable spectatorship and mistakes by which we will celebrate the experience of learning!
