Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an inspiring and powerful book, a lucid account that will be of substantial use to people already using "Theatre of the Oppressed." It should also act as an excellent introduction for those new to the system." - Artscene

"This is a useful handbook for those who want to explore Boal's 'Theatre of the Oppressed' and as such is greatly to be welcomed. Boals' work deserves and demands emulation." - Theatre Research International

"You have achieved what Brecht only dreamt of and wrote about: making a useful theatre that is entertaining, fun, and instructive. It is a different kind of theatre - a kind of social therapy.it focuses the mind, relaxes the spirit, and gives people a new handle on their situations." - Richard Schechner

Format: Paperback
This is excellent for my improvisation. Adapted the "ritual gesture" for my course. A must-have - honestly.

Format: Paperback
Boal presents the principles and practice of his Theatre of the Oppressed. He believes that the theatre and acting - to perform and to take action - is something that all can participate in. This engagement can lead to a transformation in actors as well as non-actors. Boal shares his approach to actor training which guides the participant through a process that breaks down her habitual approach to movement, voice and sensory awareness. Through repetition of exercises, one explores the senses of feeling, listening and seeing. Boal then shares games and practices of the three forms of theatre that comprise the Theatre of the Oppressed: image theatre (the picture paints a thousand words), forum theatre (rehearsing for reality), and invisible theatre (spect-actors in real life).

This is such a fantastic book. It is the most helpful book I have ever had. I use it for teaching kids and other actors, for having fun with my friends, and to make myself a better actor. The exercises and games in this book help all sorts of people and they give the people the choice of how in-depth they want to use them. It was also very cheap here on Amazon to buy the paperback used, that turned out to be in perfect condition. If you are looking for a book to help yourself as an actor or just to make a group of people better aquatinted, then this is your book.

This book is more for an acting class. I tried to use some of them in my social studies class. However, many are not applicable.
