Inexactart - The Autopoietic Theatre of Augusto Boal
By

Rating
This handbook not only provides a very wide-ranging introduction and orientation to the world of the Theatre of the Oppressed, but Birgit Fritz also presents concrete and practical assistance for structuring basic workshops in process-oriented theatre work and in developing Forum Theatre plays. Birgit Fritz explores the working principles of emancipatory theatre work and somatic learning in depth. She gives numerous examples of the work and life of theatre groups and reveals fascinating possibilities of how theatre for social change can be successfully linked with social and political commitment, so that artistic process can bring about cross-generational collaboration, develop social democracy, and operate as an active force for peace.

Reviews

This is a book which needs to be available to the English-speaking community of theatre activists and practitioners, and to those who want to know why theatre activism and practice is useful and timely. It offers clear signposts on the way to helping people to develop the sensitivity, flexibility, alertness and courage to intervene ethically and responsibly in the world. It is both accessible and inspiring. -- Ralph Yarrow, University of East Anglia
