Theatre for Social Justice Workshop:Expression and Self Preservation from an Indigenous Lens
July 24-28 from 6-9 PM
at Arts Center of the Ozarks

Tuition is $150 (scholarships available)
Join us for a special week of learning how to make devised theatre for social justice and cultural preservation. Los Angeles guest artists Mateo Ozelotzin-Hernandez and Maria Villamil will lead students through methods of theatre, storytelling and indigenous song to unpack identity, community, and the topics that are impacting our neighborhoods and our world.
For fifteen years Mateo and Maria have used theatre as a tool for indigenous preservation and expression. Using the methods of Theatre of the Oppressed (Augusto Boal), they value theatre as an action tool, and most importantly, to improve listening skills, develop confidence, increase cooperation, resolve conflict, and encourage citizen engagement.
While the lens of the lessons are through Latin culture, the topic of the Springdale workshop project will be local, topical, and personal. The workshop is open to all races and cultures, and will be facilitated in Spanish, English, and Indigenous languages.
This project is produced by Artist’s Laboratory Theatre with generous support from the University of Arkansas Brown Chair of English Literacy, Arts Center of the Ozarks, and the Walton Family Foundation.
