In the afternoon, a smaller but enthusiastic group of volunteers joined a workshop on Theatre of the Oppressed held by Clara Giberga, from the SCI Catalunya pool of trainers.
After a brief theoretical introduction, the group performed a series of warm-up exercises and games, and explored different techniques, such as image theatre and the “Columbian Hypnosis”. That workshop showed us the greatness of body expression, not only for the spectator but for those who take the role.
On the second day of the post ICM workcamp, the group left Barcelona to visit the maternity of Elna, an institution established by Elisabeth Eindenbenz and SCI Switzerland during the Spanish Civil War, where hundreds of refugee mothers gave birth to their children. The group was given a presentation about the history of the place by the staff of the museum and had the chance to walk around the building and visit the exposition. It was an inspiring and emotional story to discover. After that, the group had the chance to take a walk in the lovely city of Girona.
