This workshop will focus on and emphasize immigration themes and issues and is open to anyone who is interested in these issues or would like to learn more about them while simultaneously training in Image Theater techniques. The workshop will especially benefit people who are working inthe area of immigrants' rights.

Saturday, November 20, 2010 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, and
Sunday, November 21 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm

On Sunday morning, David Wilson, co-author (with Jane Guskin) of The Politics of Immigration (New York: Monthly Review Press, 2007. ISBN 978-1-58367-155-9) will give a special presentation that will augment and enhance the work which develops and is created in this workshop.

No prior theater experience is necessary to participate in this workshop. Participants must commit to attending both sessions in their entirety. During Theater of the Oppressed workshops a process develops among the members and when people arrive late, leave early or fail toreturn to the next session that process is compromised. If you think you will not be able to attend the whole workshop please consider enrolling in a future workshop when your schedule will allow you to attend for its complete duration.

Tuition--sliding scale: $95-$150
