Dialogue & Round March 24 2017: A Workshop with Jiwon Chung
Fri 24 March 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 PDT
Jiwon Chung, artistic director of Kairos Theater Ensemble, adjunct professor of Theater and Social Justice at the Starr King School and past president of the national organization for Theatre of the Oppressed, collaborates with Carol Mancke, artist in residence in the Department of Comparative Literature at UC Berkeley, to present a workshop titled 'Turning tables: physical dialogues on mental furniture, human commodification, and the architecture of power'.
The focus of Jiwon's work is the application of theater as a tool for social and political change, using Theatre of the Oppressed to challenge, resist and transform systemic oppression and structural violence, and to redress large scale historical atrocity and injustice. His approach to individual, interpersonal and institutional change is informed by his background as a veteran, martial artist and over 3 decades of vipassana meditation.
Carol Mancke is an artist, architect and educator working at the interesection of art and cities through her practice, machina loci. (www.machinaloci.com)
