Augusto Boal

by Frances Babbage
£19.99   paperback  Taylor & Francis Ltd (Routledge) (2018)

Augusto Boal by Frances Babbage 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.
