BOAL THEATER OF THE OPPRESSED PDF

His explorations were based on the assumption that dialogue is the common, healthy dynamic between all humans, that all human beings desire and are capable of dialogue, and that when a dialogue becomes a monologue, oppression ensues. Theatre then becomes an extraordinary tool for transforming monologue into dialogue. From his work Boal evolved various forms of theatre workshops and performances which aimed to meet the needs of all people for interaction, dialogue, critical thinking, action, and fun. While the performance modes of Forum Theatre, Image Theatre, Cop-In-The-Head, and the vast array of the Rainbow of Desire are designed to bring the audience into active relationship with the performed event, the workshops are virtually a training ground for action not only in these performance forms, but for action in life.

Augusto Boal, Cedoc - Funarte Contributed by Levana Saxon. Theater of the Oppressed provides tools for people to explore collective struggles, analyze their history and present circumstances, and then experiment with inventing a new future together through theater.

Theater of the Oppressed is an arsenal of theater techniques and games that seeks to motivate people, restore true dialogue, and create space for participants to rehearse taking action.

Boal points out that when we are simply passive audience members, we transfer our desire to take action onto the characters we identify with, and then find that desire satiated as the conflict resolves itself on stage, in films or in the news. Catharsis substitutes for action. Boal, following Brecht, calls this bourgeois theater, which functions to reproduce elite visions of the world and pacify spectators.

London: Pluto Press, Image theater see TACTIC invites spect-actors to form a tableau of frozen poses to capture a moment in time dramatizing an oppressive situation. The image then becomes a source of critical reflection, facilitated by various kinds of interventions: spect-actors may be asked to depict an ideal image of liberation from that oppression, and then a sequence of transition images required to reach it, or to reshape an image to show different perspectives. Forum theater see TACTIC is a short play or scene that dramatizes a situation, with a terribly oppressive ending that spect-actors cannot be satisfied with.

Theater thus becomes rehearsal for real-world action. Legislative theater takes forum theater to the government and asks spect-actors to not only attempt interventions on stage, but to write down the successful interventions into suggestions for legislation and hand them in to the elected officials in the room.

The objective is to unsettle passive social relations and spark critical dialogue among the spect-actors, who never learn that they are part of a play. Theater of the Oppressed offers arts-based strategy-developing exercises that foster collaboration and community-led engagement. What could be more awesome?

Augusto Boal – Theatre of the Oppressed Founder

This paper aims to clarify the original project of Augusto Boal's Theatre of the Oppressed, which is a set of dramatic techniques whose purpose is to bring to light systemic exploitation and oppression within common situations, and to allow spectators to become actors. All those have been elaborated to pursue a clear objective that is to transform spectators into actors. By becoming actors within the dramatic setting, Boal thinks that we can become political actors in everyday life. Nowadays, Theatre of the Oppressed is quite well known worldwide, but because this theatre is intended to react to specific political circumstances, we often tend to forget where it comes from, when it was born and even more important, why it was made.

Theatre of the Oppressed: Definition, History & Characteristics

Date December 11, Oppression, according to Augusto Boal, is when one person is dominated by the monologue of another and has no chance to reply. He does this through the medium of theater. Buoyant and encouraging, his face framed by an unruly silver mane, he quickly connects with the participants in his workshop through a series of stories whose implications seem to go beyond their apparent simplicity. They are human beings like myself. As the founder of a movement that has become worldwide in scope, Boal is also frank about his hopes for the people who are touched by his teaching.

Theatre of the Oppressed

The Theatre of the Oppressed TO describes theatrical forms that the Brazilian theatre practitioner Augusto Boal first elaborated in the s, initially in Brazil and later in Europe. Boal was influenced by the work of the educator and theorist Paulo Freire. Boal's techniques use theatre as means of promoting social and political change in alignment originally with radical-left politics and later with centre-left ideology. In the Theatre of the Oppressed, the audience becomes active, such that as "spect-actors" they explore, show, analyse and transform the reality in which they are living.
