The Embassy Ball

by Implicated Theatre 

Members of Implicated Theatre hosted The Embassy Ball, a participatory theatre event based on the processes of Brazilian Theatre Director Augusto Boal. The piece bid adieu to the Centre for Possible Studies at its location on Gloucester Place. 

Based at the Centre for Possible Studies, Implicated Theatre has been working together since October 2011 to develop theatre workshops, performances and research. The workshops are based in the praxis of the Brazilian director Augusto Boal (1931-2009). Boal’s conception of the ‘Theatre of the Oppressed’ explicitly challenges the divisions between active and passive subjects in theatre. These experimental workshops explore the relationships between political speech and action, the self and the collective, voice and silence. Implicated Theatre are a collective of artists including users and supporters of the Migrants Resource Centre, London.
