The problem of bullying is of great importance in education, due to the severity of its consequences. The paper aims to present some ideas about how theatre, as an art form, can be used in the fight against bullying in education. In this context, the use of the theatre concept of the oppressed as a tool to combat bullying behaviours can be more successful, as the act of denouncing oppression through actions, mimicry and gestures, through the tones of voice, leads to the setting of benchmarks. between the participating students / children and the educational community. Starting from the idea presented by the Brazilian writer and activist Augusto Bool, in turn influenced by the Brazilian pedagogue Paulo Freire, we aim to stop the phenomenon of bullying by introducing different theatre sequences in which children get involved, identify, analyse and explore, so as the spectators ask them to do, and in the end, in this way, it transforms the reality in which they live.
