TO in the time of COVID-19

The global COVID-19 pandemic has caused severe disruptions in the lives of communities around the world. Nationwide lockdowns, social distancing, work from home, have all heightened anxieties and intensified existing struggles. With on-site physical theatre ruled out, CCDC has been able to offer creative adaptations of TO to help communities build resilience in these trying times. We have conducted online Theatre of the Oppressed workshops for youth, women in professional spaces, and senior citizens, addressing issues such as ‘coping with authority’, ‘performance anxiety’, ‘online harassment’, and ‘connecting across distances’.

Is TO for you?

Yes! TO is for everyone!
Centre for Community Dialogue and Change offers workshops and training in Theatre of the Oppressed for diverse populations - students, teachers and teacher trainers, healthcare professionals, senior citizens, women's groups, development professionals, artists, activists and more.
CCDC offers workshops on issues and themes that communities wish to address. Our workshops are designed to meet your needs, and therefore we are happy to schedule them – number of sessions, duration and timings – as per your convenience. We offer workshops in four languages- English, Hindi, Kannada and Tamil. A public Forum Theatre performance as a part of the workshop is offered in longer engagements.
