KURINGAs Theatre of the Oppressed Qualification Programme is designed by Bárbara Santos, who was colleague of Augusto Boal in Brazil for two decades and has worked in the design, implementation, coordination, supervision and evaluation of training programs in several countries. The Programme in Berlin is implemented in collaboration with Christoph Leucht and Till Baumann.

The KURINGA Qualification Programme combines the theoretical deepening with practical experiences - abstract discussion with the concrete enlightening -, contributing to the consistent development of the praxis of the method. This program is based on three pillars: training, multiplication and evaluation.

This initiative aims to produce a base for a consistent and reliable curriculum for permanent qualification courses in the Method of Theatre of the Oppressed and to stimulate the groundwork for the transformation of reality through formation of and exchange between TO community groups.

Participation is open to anyone who wants to deepen his or her knowledge and develop a practice in Theatre of the Oppressed. However, civil society organizations, wishing to invest in the qualification of their colleagues and engage in community actions aimed to overcome injustices, will be given priority for participation and monitoring.

THEATRE OF THE OPPRESSED QUALIFICATION PROGRAM

 

KURINGAs Theatre of the Oppressed Qualification Programme is designed by Bárbara Santos, who was colleague of Augusto Boal in Brazil for two decades and has worked in the design, implementation, coordination, supervision and evaluation of training programs in several countries. The Programme in Berlin is implemented in collaboration with Christoph Leucht and Till Baumann.

The KURINGA Programme combines the theoretical deepening with practical experiences, contributing to the consistent development of the praxis of the method. Knowledge and experience are developed through collective artistic productions, which are a practical application of the theoretical concepts, and can become a reference for the multiplication process. The programme is composed by two 12-day course periods complemented by seminars, theatrical laboratories and the annual APRIL in KURINGA Forum Theatre Festival.

 

The KURINGA Qualification Programme and the APRIL in KURINGA Festival contribute to create networks of solidarity and exchange, where TO community groups and practitioners can work together for a transformation of the reality.

 

Annual Seminar & Theatrical Laboratory during APRIL in KURINGA Forum Theatre Festival: 5-day activities

A practical initiative for all participants of the KURINGA Qualification Programme and their groups with internal discussions and practical exchanges along with public activities as Forum Theatre Presentations.

 

The Theatre of the Oppressed is an aesthetic method that aims to transform reality that was created by Brazilian playwright Augusto Boal. It stimulates the critical observation and the representation of reality, envisioning the production of consciousness and concrete actions. Theatre of the Oppressed proposes the elimination of the barrier between the stage and the audience to establish a free transit between the artists and the spectators, which are invited to act as subjects and producers of culture and knowledge, and to discuss concrete proposals in a playful and democratic space.

 

In the First International Theatre of the Oppressed Conference, held in July 2009, in Rio de Janeiro, at Centre of Theatre of the Oppressed, said the shortage and the urgent need to offer in-depth skills and more structured, addressing the theoretical background and analyze critically the practice of the method. The KURINGA's Qualification Programme is intended to be a concrete action in the construction of required path.

 

It is a training program in Theatre of the Oppressed that aims to combine the theoretical deepening with practical experiences and abstract discussion with the concrete enlightening, enabling the consistent development of the praxis of the method. This proposal for qualification is based on three pillars: training, multiplication and evaluation.
