Theatre for Living (formerly Headlines Theatre)

Theatre for Living (formerly Headlines Theatre), directed by David Diamond, uses THEATRE FOR LIVING to help living communities tell their stories. THEATRE FOR LIVING has evolved from Augusto Boal's "Theatre of the Oppressed". Since 1989 Theatre for Living work has slowly moved away from the binary language and model of "oppressor/oppressed" and now approaches community-based cultural work from a systems-based perspective; understanding that a community is a complexly integrated, living organism.

Theatre for Living also offers annual summer training workshops:
