"I've learned more in this 5 day intensive than I have in the 5 years I've been working on my Master's degree."
"I've taken Theatre of the Oppressed training with many 'big' names all over the world. Only now do I feel that I truly understand the work."
"It's so important to learn social justice from people who are oppressed. Your 'earned knowledge' was essential to earning my trust, as a diverse person who has often been tokenized and become cynical."
"For the first time, I'm walking out of a workshop with more ideas about what I want to do in my own practice, than what I never want to do."
"I'm not an artist, but I have a new-found appreciation for the role that imagination plays in innovation."
"I've come to understand that emotional intelligence is more important than intellectual intelligence. Especially in social justice work. After all, as Che said, 'the true revolutionary is motivated by great feelings of love'."
"Now I get what oppression actually means . . . It's all about the power. Not my intent!"
“I’m leaving the . . . workshop with many tools to challenge the oppressive behaviors I see so often in my work. My spirit has been energized and my mind has been opened in many ways.”
"Thank you for giving me back the true spirit of theatre."
