"Hit and Run" Theatre Workshop
Instructor: Masra7 Masha3
Hit and Run workshop is a theatre workshop based on your personal story, to explore moments of conflict in which our communication skills did not help us.
In a time of such uncertainty and loss of control over our future, we have to wonder why as a community, in many moments we end up with violent solutions. As a branch is to a tree, we are as individual’s vital parts of the bigger organism that is our society. We have to wonder, how have the personal one-on-one incidents where we have failed to explain ourselves contributed to a bigger conflict? (If at all)
As vague as the hypothesis might sound, even us as the younger generation can remember a time where a dispute on the street ended with less punches and screams. Have the voices in our heads mislead us and harmed more than helped us in resolving such situations?
Through theatre games, we will create short skits based on our personal story where we have experienced a loss of control that led us to not knowing what to do. We will create a safe creative space that helps us rebuild those moments so that we can present them, and work through them with our community.
