This two-day training enables you to work on issues like violence, power, gender, masculinity, empathy and many more in an engaging way. It encourages you to be creative, as well as explore and improve your existing skills.

The trainer

Olivier Malcor

Olivier Malcor is philosopher and theatre of the oppressed facilitator. Since 20 years he has been staging violence and abuse of power in many countries, allowing audiences to rehearse change. He is constantly developing simple and gradual tools to script power and dismantle violence, mainly games and theatrical techniques.

The exercises and activities from the training are crucial and easily applied with perpetrators, especially young people. What is very special about the exercises we covered is that they come from experiences by the trainer and participants.
