WHO WE ARE:
The Other Side Intercultural Theatre, Inc, is an initiative to create a community of girls through global drama exchange.
WHAT WE DO:
We create a cross-cultural exchange of dramatic storytelling amongst girls, supporting their common experience, inspiring leadership, and developing community.
HOW WE DO IT:
Through drama exchange girls become invested in friendships created and stand up for themselves and each other.
Using Theatre of the Oppressed, song-writing exercises, and other devised theatre techniques, participating girls create plays and songs, telling their own stories. Theatre of the Oppressed is a technique of doing theatre that addresses social issues in participants lives, and gives them a vehicle to rehearse possible action to make a change. As part of the creative process, each U.S.-based participating group documents and shares their plays with an international-based participant group, and vice-versa, thereby creating an intercultural dialogue and building friendships. Through these drama processes, performances, and friendships, the girls learn about each other, about themselves, and gain the confidence to create change in their communities and advocate for equality for girls worldwide.
Like pen pals. But with theatre.
