LA XIXA TEATRE ASSOCIATION, SPAIN

La Xixa Teatre Association is a non -profit organization that aims to research, develop and multiply educational theatrical tools as a means for social transformation. We believe that education is the key tool for social change.

The mission of the Association La Xixa Teatre is to facilitate the creation of spaces for empowerment through Participatory methodologies, Process Oriented Psychology and Theatre of the Oppressed to generate processes of individual and collective transformation in contexts of social vulnerability.

La Xixa Teatre values are :
• To promote the participation of people from diverse cultural backgrounds.
• To promote the values of coexistence in a framework of equality.
• To see the cultural diversity present in our society as a source of wealth.
• To promote an inclusive society where all forms of human diversity are fully accepted.
• To visualize the dialogue as a source of mutual empowerment where to search for alternatives.
• To consider theatre as a means for building community empowerment and social experimentation.

For us educational theatre is necessary for reflection and for the process for social change because theatre can concretize conflict and from there, learn to manage them. Therefore, we are in a constant research of our training proposals. We base our interventions on different techniques, because as organization we face complex social problems that require complex answers.
