Evan Hastings: Shadow Liberation

Sat, 26.05. – Sun, 27.05.2018 im Spiel_Raum Wien

2-day workshop for 8-10 people with Evan Hastings (USA/India), founder of Shadow Liberation.

The workshop will provide 8-10 people training in the Shadow Liberation Method of Performance Dialogue about Gender Violence .

Shadow Theatre offers distancing strategies conducive to playing with taboo or traumatic material in metaphoric, veiled or abstracted ways. This makes it an ideal medium to prompt discussions about gender-based violence, while providing a personally transformative and professionally enriching training for the participants engaged in the ensemble. The ensemble is a microcosm of society. Therefore issues of the society surface in the group. We use the issues that come out of our shared experiences to create nuanced representations of Gender Violence, situated in the lives of the performers. This process requires a courage and honesty from the performers that, through the creative process, changes their lives, awakening the potential to impact lasting social change.

Practically speaking, participants will learn how to facilitate creative dialogue about gender violence using Theatre of the Oppressed, Shadow Theatre and Drama Therapy Techniques.

Evan has a passion for turning pain into medicine through theatre. His work illuminates the intersection of Drama Therapy and Theatre of the Oppressed, creating performative engagements that raise urgent issues in aesthetic dialogue. Evan has had the honour of animating theatrical dialogue from the fault lines of war zones to the halls of Harvard, from working with prisoners in high security facilities to engaging families through open air performances in public spaces. Theatre is an act of Love.
