Description

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.
