QUEER// A Theatre of the Oppressed Exploration

January 14 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pm

£10 – £75

“Being queer means embracing a free and open-ended identity by casting off all other identities that categorize us, and defining ourselves simply as human beings.”

– Nadia Cho

What is queer? Who is queer? When is queer? How is queer? Why is queer? Reeuq i ma?

“Being queer means ceasing to think in binaries like “male” or “female,” “gay” or “straight,” “monogamous” or “non-monogamous,” because there are more than two sides to every person and every context. It means being aware of and OK with the fact that our own identities and sexualities are always in flux, never static. Being queer means recognizing that there are alternate gender identities, such as transgender or genderqueer or androgynous folks, and respecting that these identities are just as legitimate as those that are visible.”

Using games, play and dialogue techniques from Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed, for one day we will co-create and experiment together to explore what what we have experienced, how we are now, and what we could be in the future, through an embodied discussion of power and oppression as it relates to queerness.

All are welcome to join us in this interactive and engaged discussion.
