Time to replicate the “Sistren Theatre Collective” Model

Sistren

Sistren Theatre Collective began in 1977;

as an Independent Cultural organization of working class women who employed popular theatre techniques in their exploration and analysis of the social, political and legal condition and status of Jamaican women. Focussing particularly on poor black women, Sistren uses personal testimonies as a critique of a system, which discriminated against women on the basis of gender, class and colour.

In 2014 Issues continue to face us, tensions and contradictions continue to rise and threaten our communities and the survival of our selves. Dialogue is important. Debate is important. The Sistren Theatre Collective has shown that its methods are relevant and make sense to us. It helps to delve in, understand, take action and recreate.

Beginning in the next few weeks we will be attempting to replicate and make use of popular theatre techniques to discuss ideas of leadership, community and resistance. We hope this is the beginning of spreading the model even wider.
