April 2-8, 2017, The Freedom Theatre invites international theatre activists: professional artists, theatre students and teachers, to a seven-day workshop that will offer training of actors of resistance, preparing their bodies, minds and spirits for such work, presenting the practice and theory of the work and pedagogy of The Freedom Theatre.
Micaela Miranda and Nabil Al-Raee from The Freedom Theatre will lead the workshop. They will share their work and pedagogy developed within the framework of Cultural Resistance, making use of personal transformation as a political tool for social change.
In addition to gaining knowledge about the work and mission of The Freedom Theatre, this workshop will also give opportunities to try out some of the techniques developed by Micaela and Nabil in collecting stories and transposing them as part of The Freedom Theatre’s cultural resistance work.
On April 4, workshop participants are invited to engage in an event at The Freedom Theatre, which is a celebration of cultural resistance and of the legacy of our co-founder Juliano Mer Khamis. There will be performances, film screenings, discussions and the graduation of the 2014-2017 class of The Freedom Theatre School.
