Mobilizing Myself: The Joker as Object of Oppression 被壓迫者劇場引導者的内驅力

轉載 被壓迫者劇場引導者的内驅力 


by Phui Yi Kong

I was born, raised, and currently live in Malaysia.

When I was facilitating Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) workshops in college in southern Maine, USA, TO offerings were easier to set up and support. Groups would instinctively grasp the critical nature of the process, diving deeper into it to milk the form’s potential. These participants were a combination of academics and seasoned activists. They already carried a belief in individual social change. When given a chance to work collectively on an issue, these primed groups would self-mobilize. Almost all the time, they would teach me about the issue at hand. My role, as a facilitator/Joker, was to keep the dialogue and problem solving hats rotating through the group members. I became a container for everyone to talk to each other using their true voice. Things changed when I returned home.

Fast-forward to the time my TO Mentorship began, I had just resettled in my childhood home of Malaysia and began a career as a secondary school teacher. The conversations I was having and hearing around me changed from questions about how to set up guerilla activist action outside the statehouse to how lessons are getting through to learners. Both questions are important and factors in pushing social change, but the latter had dulled my senses. If “slumping” was a participle, it would aptly describe the circumstances through which I operated in the past year to facilitate Theatre of the Oppressed:
‘Slumping through the year in her own stomping ground, she barely roused political will.’

探索工作坊 反思日誌







辛苦的靈魂   想    衝破來自世界的束縛

自由    飛    甚至有意識地行走

用雙腳踏地感受

用身體和心連在一起             和自己安靜地住在一個海灣

有陽光 有風   和拜訪的鳥

專注的當下    框架現行    磨     磨去表層

露出內裏   再磨    越細

直至一小角已磨碎    脆弱帶來自由

真正的自由

106年度部落健康營造北中區教育訓練——種籽反思日誌

台灣原住民醫學學會  陳暳陵整理




1、終於對課程內容有了一些了解。我覺得當領導者比較容易,引導者則必須要更有智慧。以前(衛福部)的課幾乎都是在講領導者,沒上過引導者的課程。這課程對我們(部落)工作者很多的幫助。聆聽、陪伴似乎是我缺乏的,感謝老師的啟發,讓我有更多的反思,放下自己真實以對,才能看到事情的真相。我是來對了,感謝這2天的課程,回到部落回到工作多觀察,常以圓來對話。


2、這是第3次上課程,由過程中更認識自己,透過劇場讓我反思部落的問題,也許可以介入策略,帶動部落讓原鄉的人成為引導者,最後透過劇場切入不同的主題。


看著鏡中的自己,更是突顯自己在部落的所需與想法,很多時候我們常常是被動者,很少說話,無論遊戲或劇場,這樣的模式更能讓我會多學習,很多時候就因為這樣啟發,會讓人覺得任何事都可以改善得好還要再好。

106年度部落健康營造南區教育訓練——論壇劇場種籽反思日誌


"We are all full of stories, stories which need to be told and – equally importantly – need to be heard. It’s a primitive, basic need... I loved the fluidity and engagement of the Forum process. I trust it."

"每一個人都有許多需要被說出來的故事, 重要的是,得有人聽。 這是人類的本能... 我喜歡論壇劇場流動的參與過程。 "       Cardboard Citizens

一、印象最深刻的遊戲為鏡子裡的鏡子!!表達出內心最真實的自己不用拘束,不用被束縛,呈現最真實的自己!

論壇劇場將工作中會遇到的方向難題、難處,藉由劇場表達出大家的無奈,會後討論大家集思廣益分享希望大家能在未來工作順利。
