Branch Out Theatre
Branch Out Theatre facilitates innovative, participatory theatre and popular education workshops and productions to empower personal, collective and creative transformation.
We energize community building, self-expression, social and environmental consciousness, collaborative leadership, conflict resolution, strategic planning, dialogue and wellness.
Our workshops and productions create the space for re-awakening imagination, addressing pressing issues and enacting change through improvisation, cooperative games, movement, playwriting, devising original theatre, storytelling, dialogue and more!
Branch Out Theatre specializes in Augusto Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed, which centralizes pertinent issues of injustice in order to empower individuals and communities to be agents of change. In addition to Theatre of the Oppressed, Branch Out Theatre uses a variety of frameworks such as Playback Theatre, World Café, InterPlay and Open Space.
Thoughts about art and community:
We are excited to be a part of the growing community arts field in Toronto and delighted to collaborate with other artists to sustain the arts as a thriving entity of this city!
