Alycia Bacon of Mothers Out Front on Organizing Theatre of the Oppressed
As created by Brazilian theatre visionary, Theatre of the Oppressed is a form of popular community-based education that uses theater as a tool for social change. Originally developed out of Boal’s revolutionary work with peasant and worker populations in Latin America, it is now used all over the world for social and political activism, conflict resolution, community building, therapy, and government legislation. Alycia Bacon of Mothers Out Front discusses her efforts to organize the Theatre of Liberation in the Capital District, with a first show expected in November.
