Jiwon Chung is a professional actor, director, and a key theorist of Theatre of the Oppressed. He teaches at Starr King School at the Graduate Theological Union, and the Berkeley Repertory Theater School. The focus of his work is in the application of theatre as a tool for social and political change, using Theatre of the Oppressed to challenge, resist, and transform systemic oppression and structural violence and to redress large scale historical atrocity and injustice. His approach to performance and social change is informed by his background as veteran, martial artist, and three decades of vipassana meditation.
