In my sessions we have begun to explore some Theatre of the Oppressed techniques, such as Image Theatre, Cop in the Head, and Rainbow of Desires. And we're looking at the viability of publishing a piece that's interactive, with opportunities for the audience to directly engage within the story and to address the issues presented.
The audience making their own suggestions for what they might do differently to change the outcome for the better.
The group have been very open to trying new techniques, and the sessions have provided me as facilitator the opportunity to experiment with these games and exercises online via Zoom. I feel the sessions are providing people with an important moment each week to connect with others during lock down, to find creative expression for how people are feeling and what is on their minds. And importantly to be playful and have fun.'
