Action Training

 

I-MIGRATE

London

 

We are looking for 1
participant from Portugal between 20 and 35 years old.

 

Come and join us from
11th to 20th April 2010.

The Course is Free of
Charge and funded by the EU and CoE.

 

This Training Course will bring 22 Video and Theatre Artists from diverse European backgrounds
together to learn innovative tools for engaging youth in social action at the local level. The primary focus of the Activity will be the use of Invisible Theatre and Video to promote intercultural dialogue and analyse immigration and what people think about it.

Extra info:

The training is based on practical work. There
will be a final screening of the Movies produced. The presentation with the
community as a result of the work done will be an important learning
opportunity for the participants.

 

Invisible Theatre

Invisible theatre is a form of theatrical performance that is enacted in a place where people would not normally expect to see one, for example in the street or in a shopping centre. The Brazilian theatre
practitioner Augusto Boal developed the form during his time in Argentina in the 1970s as part of his Theatre of the Oppressed, which focused on oppression and social issues. Boal went on to develop
forum theatre.

 

So while we will perform, some participants
will secretly film the action.
