This Black History Month, join The Incident Project, in this innovative workshop exploring racism, power and privilege in today’s society.

About the workshop

The Incident Project aims to tackle racism and promote dialogue around diversity. In this one off workshop at Poplar Union, community members are invited to explore and challenge the social complexities created by constructs of racism, power and privilege.

What to expect

The workshop uses two scenes from The Incident, a new play written by Swedish playwright Joakim Daun, to encourage participants to reflect on their own experiences and prejudices. Through theatre games and Theatre of the Oppressed techniques, you will generate dialogue and explore new narratives based on the participants own experiences.

Who is it for?

This workshop is for anyone; from audience members who have seen The Incident, to members of the community who have no experience in theatre. There is no required training or experience to participate. We only ask that you come willing to engage creatively and critically in dialogue, and share stories and experiences through theatre and play.

*Those who attended The Incident play (Sunday 21 October) receive 20% off their workshop ticket.
