What Now For the Theatre of the Oppressed? Conversations with TO Practitioners will welcome leading global practitioners of Theatre of the Oppressed – Augusto Boal’s methods for combining theatre and activism – and ask them the place each practitioner sees their work and the methodology occupying in the new world we are in and in the future..
The conversations will be hosted by Adrian Jackson , Cardboard Citizens’ Artistic Director and translator of Augusto Boal’s work into English. The practitioners come from all over the globe – including India, Brazil, Senegal, and Israel – offering us fascinating insights into theatre’s role in responding to the crisis.
