Requesting your response and ideas...

Facilitated by Stéphane Louis Marie Gué from Guatemala, this workshop will explore a range of theatre-based tools to facilitate community reflection and action on HIV-related human rights issues along a methodology developed by Brazilian director and activist Augusto Boal. Participants will participate in an experiential cycle involving games for actors and non-actors, and will express and extend the terms of the human rights debate through action and image rather than words. They will practice as active spectators on-stage how to change reality off-stage.
