Games and exercises in the Theatre of the Oppressed

Though there is nothing mandatory in the activities of the Theatre of the Oppressed, but games and exercises are highly recommended! They help to relax, see ourselves, the world and other people differentely, feel the group of people as the unified team. 

Augusto Boal talks about 5 groups of games and exercises:

- feeling what we touch
- listening to what we touch
- dynamising several senses
- seeing what we look at
- the memory of the senses

Of course the most important is creativity. Therefore it is important to pay attention to the age, interests, attitudes of the group.
