Theatre of the Oppressed

by Augusto Boal - £15.99  Pluto Press (2008)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780745328386 | ISBN 10: 0745328385

This new edition of Theatre of the Oppressed brings a classic work on radical drama fully up to date and includes a new foreword by the author Augusto Boal.
 
Boal restores theatre to its proper place as a popular form of communication and expression. He demonstrates the ways in which theatre has come to reflect ruling-class control, drawing on the theories of Aristotle and Machiavelli. He then shows the process reversed in Brechtian/Marxist poetics to the revolutionary potential of transforming the spectator into the actor.
 
Throughout, Boal draws on his own experience in Latin America and illustrates his theory with practical examples.
