Truthworker Theatre Company: Artists As Activists
Come join Samara Gaev, founder and Artistic Director of Truthworker Theatre Company, in a dynamic, interactive workshop that will draw from the multiplicity of narratives that live within the participants. We’ll be guided in using embodiment and visionary storytelling to unpack issues of trauma, healing, power, privilege, social justice, and inequity in our communities. Drawing from a Theatre of the Oppressed pedagogy, we’ll creatively collaborate to conceive of new possibilities for testimony, empathy building and radical systems change. There will also be a performance by members of the Truthworker company of a few excerpts of their provocative trilogy depicting the prison industrial complex through the lens of a dozen youth impacted by mass incarceration.
