Acting the Words is Enacting the World is a two week-long experiment in radical modes of education. Working with a group of young people aged 16-20, Truong and Ngo will conduct a series of intensive workshops that explore the economy from a perspective of philosophy, history, and art. This project approaches collaborative art-making and radical education through Augusto Boal’s theater techniques, using performance as a mode of knowledge transfer through an activation of spectators as actors.

With Acting the Words is Enacting the World, EFA Project Space begins a series of projects built around the concept of the Artist / Organizer. This series will highlight the activities of individuals who, through the act of organizing, pioneer the evolution of our creative landscape. Artist / Organizers are artists by nature who feel compelled to organize - to readdress / refresh / change the framework through which we experience artistic expression.
