"School Acts" is a theater performance that tackles the triangular relationship between students, parents and educational bodies, with what this relationship carries in terms of problematic and conflicts by questioning the power patterns governing it.
This work does not generally adopt the position of one party in the face of the other, however it does not stand on the side-lines, but takes the place of each party over and over again to reflect, question and discuses each position from its point of view, without equivocation or compliments.
The work shows those aspects of school/community life putting the audience in a responsible position from what they are viewing and doing.
