Shadow Liberation

Participatory Shadow Theatre for Dialogue


Shadow Liberation uses creatively crafted visual stories to captivate the imagination and invite audiences to interrupt the injustice of gender violence. In the tradition of Augusto Boal's Forum Theatre, audience members are invited on stage to offer improvisational interventions into scenes depicting oppression. This artistic dialogue offers no quick fix solutions but rather places faith in the emerging ethics of the community to creatively address the problem.

Join one of our embodied workshops and experience Shadow Liberation for yourself. With a variety of workshop offerings, there is never a dull moment.
