Rehearsing Reality portrays the lives of the people in the Brazil’s Landless Movement and their struggle for land at the point of interaction with Boal’s Theatre of the Oppressed, a technique that breaks the conventions of traditional theatre by transforming a passive audience into active participants. Rehearsing Reality has been screened in festivals in Europe, the USA and Brazil, receiving great praise for combining strong content with groundbreaking creative documentary viewing.

Sun 6th October: 12pm + post-screening Q&A | Free Book here
A provocative journey through the emotional and physical landscapes of political theatre in Latin America.
Running time: 95 mins

In Bolivia, Colombia and Brazil, we meet the hearts and souls and hear the voices of freedom fighters who use a peaceful weapon: theatre.
We explored the richness of each country’s history and culture, their turbulent past, and witnessed how it expresses itself in the present. The flourishing social political theatre scene, in all its guises, is our vehicle and our muse. Featuring Teatro de Los Andes and Teatro de La Candelaria.

About the filmmakers:
Ines von Bonhorst and Yuri Pirondi are directors, producers and artists with over ten years of experience directing documentaries, film, shorts and experimental movies, video art installations and commercials in both the UK and worldwide. More info here
