Theatre of the Oppressed is a powerful tool for people who want to effect change in their own lives and in their communities.

Delivered over five days this intensive includes fun, energetic, practical group exercises and forms (including Image Theatre, Forum Theatre, and Cop in the Head); plus opportunities to ‘be a joker’ and participate in discussions on TO history, philosophy, and pedagogy.

The workshop is led by QSE Artistic Director Dr Rob Pensalfini, who is an experienced Joker (Theatre of the Oppressed facilitator). He has utilised this work with teachers’ organisations, primary and secondary schools, universities, community organisations, and in prisons in both Australia and the USA. Rob has trained with leading Theatre of the Oppressed practitioners from around the world, including Brent Blair, Julian Boal, and Barbara Santos. Together, Rob and Brent pioneered the renowned Shakespeare Prison Project in 2006, Australia’s first Prison Shakespeare initiative.
