Changing scripts, workshops in Apulia Region

8 May 2021 - 16 May 2021

Often we end up trapped in rigid and externally imposed roles. We end up playing old scripts that push us into problematic behavior. Where do these roles and scripts come from? How can we change them if they oppress us?

When scripts come from social norms, transmitted by family, school and the whole society, we can only change them in a collective way. Individuals alone cannot dismantle a whole system of prescriptions. Thanks to the theatre of the oppressed, we can enjoy doing it in an effective way. Through games and exercises accessible to everyone, we stage the daily situations where we, as women and men, end up doing something different from our desires, playing sad scripts. Once an issue has been staged, participants then try to tackle the problem and rehearse solutions, all this in a safe theatrical framework.

The workshops will be held in the urban laboratory “LABottega” in Conversano (Apulia), within the Gender Games project, coordinated by Venti di scambio association.
