 1.  Theatre of the oppressed

Boal, Augusto London Pluto 2000 745316573 Trade paperback


Text in English, Spanish. 216p. : ill.; 22 cm. Pluto classics. Part of Pluto's 21st birthday series "Get Political", which brings essential political writing in a range of fields to a new audience. This new edition of "Theater of the Oppressed" brings a classic work on radical drama fully up to date and includes a new introduction 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.
