Rainbow of Desire Applied Theatre Intensive

Event Details

What happens when you take apart a single moment of conflict to explore every possible desired action?

In this experiential workshop led by Simon Malbogat, participants will activate Augusto Boal’s applied theatre techniques, such as image theatre and improvisation, to play out the multiple and competing desires of an individual or character as they navigate a moment of conflict.

This workshop, which is ideal for educators, actors, directors, counsellors, social workers, and community leaders, employs Boal’s Rainbow of Desire technique to broaden perspectives and reframe situations by focusing on the inner thoughts and impulses of the individual. Through storytelling and performance, participants will gain a deeper understanding of their conflicting and co-existing desires, which will enrich their work onstage and in community settings.
