Summary "Routledge Performance Practitioners is a series of introductory guides to the key theatre-makers of the last century. Each volume explains the background to and the work of one of the major influences on twentieth- and twenty-first-century performance. These compact, well-illustrated, and clearly written books will unravel the contribution of modern theatre's most charismatic innovators. This newly-updated volume looks at the scope of Augusto Boal's career - from his early work as a playwright and director in Sao Paulo in the 1950s, to the development of his ground-breaking manifesto in the 1970s for a 'Theatre of the Oppressed'. Offering fascinating reading for anyone interested in the role that theatre can play in stimulating social and personal change, this useful study includes: A biographical and historical overview of Boal's career as theatre practitioner and director; an in-depth analysis of Boal's classic text on radical theatre; an exploration of training and production techniques Practical guidance to Boal's workshop methods. This is an essential introduction to the work of a practitioner who has had a tremendous impact on contemporary theatre. As a first step towards critical understanding, and as an initial exploration before going on to further, primary research, Routledge Performance Practitioners are unbeatable value for today's student."-- Provided by publisher
