By Adrian Jackson
Cardboard Citizens’ Artistic Director Adrian Jackson founded the company in 1991. Since then he has directed over 20 productions for the company, devising and writing many of them. As well as producing many Forum Theatre pieces, Adrian has also directed all the company’s larger-scale site-specific productions, including Pericles, co-produced with the Royal Shakespeare Company. He has worked as Augusto Boal’s translator on five books Games for Actors and Non-Actors, The Rainbow of Desires, The Legislative Theatre, Hamlet and the Baker’ Son (Boal’s autobiography) and The Aesthetics of the Oppressed. He has led workshops with Boal on many occasions, and they collaborated on The Art of Legislation, an Artangel-sponsored piece of Legislative Theatre at County Hall in London.
Rainbow of Desires is the over-arching name given by Augusto Boal to a range of exercises, games and techniques on using the power of theatre to identify, analyse and respond to “internalised oppression” and to seek to understand its origins.
These three days will give participants an understanding of Rainbow of Desire techniques, their relation to Augusto Boal’s other tools such as Forum Theatre, and their practical applications, from the operation of a therapeutic group to the rehearsal of a play.
