Intersections: Theatre Techniques and Human Rights with Jadranka Anđelić [Serbia]

How are reality and human rights refracted in a creative way through theater? The performance situation often stimulates the understanding of the cause of an event. We will work with theater techniques (viewpoints), group exercises and role play of situations from life, thus offering ways to utilize theater in work on human rights issues. We will seek answers to the questions: how do theater techniques develop relationships between people, respect for diversity, the desire to get to know the other? How to transform through theater disagreement into dialogue, rejection into cooperation, fear of social changes into a creative act?
