Augusto Boal

In this encyclopedia entry, Jan Cohen-Cruz and Mady Schutzman provide an insight into the history, theory and practice of Augusto Boal (1931-2009) - the endlessly energetic and innovative Brazilian theatre activist, theorist, thinker, maker, and city councillor. He is best known for a set of exercises and their political-philosophical underpinnings dubbed Theatre of the Oppressed, which was acclaimed for its social relevance, collective problem solving, and the opportunity for people struggling with oppression to become proactive in their own liberation.
