"Theatre for Social Healing- (It is not a theory, it's a process)" is a group and individual process of healing using theatre games/activities, music and movements, body and non-verbal languages. Healing is an essential part of our life. We all go through a lot in our lives and we need safe space, environment and time to look back to ourselves and understand ourselves deeper. During the process/workshop, participants will go through different processes and re-discover themselves. The process leads to finding inner self and discovering 'others in me' and 'me in others'. During the workshop we will use our bodies and emotions to develop new ways to communicate and to explore the universality of physical language. The workshop intends to create personal, professional and spiritual growth, deeper connections, love, trust, peace and solidarity while serving the healing process to each participant.
