RISE’s members and peers and volunteers are invited to be involved in ReDEFIANT. A community Forum Theatre project by refugees and asylum seekers to tell it like it is.

Don’t let politicians, and journalists speak for you and DEFINE your identity. Experience how Theatre of the Oppressed devised by Brazilian artist Augusto Boal allows you to take ownership of your language, claim space and address oppression and racism. Be heard and be seen. Advocate for social justice and inclusion.

Workshops are conducted and facilitated by Tatiana Grasso from Brazil in a safe and open environment so anyone can join.

The outcome will be a fun 3 night public forum/act at the La Mama in early November.
