Project FHOFIJ: THE THATRE OF THE OPRESSED: FORUM FOR SOCIAL CHANGE PDF Stampa E-mail

We've created a short documentary video on the use of the Theatre of the Oppressed method in defending the rights of LGBT people.

The video presents Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) methodology, which helps empower oppressed individuals to respond to discrimination and oppression assertively and can be used as one of the ways to change society.

The Theatre of the Oppressed provides a space to stimulate a change in people and in a society but differently than, for example, in the ideological theatre. A discriminated social group can here express their own perception and desire to change on the one hand and can experiment with various ways to reach the desired world, on the other hand.

The video is the end product of the Facing Homophobia for an Inclusive Job project, which explores the possibilities of using and interlacing various non-formal education methods for better involvement of LGBT people with an emphasis on work and employment.
