This theatre workshop is an invitation to explore and practice ways we find solidarity, or power-with, in times of intensifying state-sanctioned white-supremacist violence, ecological terrorism, and more. We will draw from techniques and critiques of Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) to confront the ugliness that attempts to hide in the matrix — and the beauty as well. How do we focus on systemic change and not just “bad apples” in this landscape full of battlefields and fields of potential solidarity? How can we knock out the stilts that support this house of oppression and build liberation instead? We believe that theatre-based dialogue can help us take these steps in a rigorous and constructive way.
