Book description

<P>This dynamic book offers a comprehensive companion to the theory and practice of Theatre of the Oppressed. Developed by Brazilian director and theorist Augusto Boal, these theatrical forms invite people to mobilize their knowledge and rehearse struggles against oppression.</P> <P></P> <P>Featuring a diverse array of voices (many of them as yet unheard in the academic world), the book hosts dialogues on the following questions, among others:</P> <P></P> <UL> <P> <LI>Why and how did Theatre of the Oppressed develop?</LI> <P></P> <P> <LI>What are the differences between the&nbsp;1970s (when Theatre of the Oppressed began) and today?</LI> <P></P> <P> <LI>How has Theatre of the Oppressed been shaped by local and global shifts of the last 40-plus years?</LI> <P></P> <P> <LI>Why has Theatre of the Oppressed spread or "multiplied" across so many geographic, national, and cultural borders?</LI> <P></P> <P> <LI>How has Theatre of the Oppressed been shaped by globalization, "development," and neoliberalism?</LI> <P></P> <P> <LI>What are the stakes, challenges, and possibilities of Theatre of the Oppressed today?</LI> <P></P> <P> <LI>How can Theatre of the Oppressed balance practical analysis of <I>what is</I> with ambitious insistence on <I>what could be</I>?</LI> <P></P> <P> <LI>How can Theatre of the Oppressed hope, but concretely?</LI> <P></P></UL> <P></P> <P>Broad in scope yet rich in detail, <I>The Routledge Companion to Theatre of the Oppressed</I> contains practical and critical content relevant to artists, activists, teachers, students, and researchers.</P>
