Summary

This exciting collection of archival film footage—some of it never before shared publicly—will be useful for Theatre of the Oppressed students, practitioners, and scholars of any level of familiarity or experience. Resources include: 

  • detailed footage of Augusto Boal and Julian Boal facilitating workshops at the International Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed (PTO) Conference
  • a film of Augusto Boal's final trip to the PTO Conference
  • footage excerpts of a variety of artists from around the world using Forum Theatre in their own local, urgent struggles 
  • a companion booklet of short essays and interviews that contextualize the dynamic activist projects featured on the DVD.

Combining professionally-filmed video with amateur footage, this project aims to capture Theatre of the Oppressed as a system of techniques defined simultaneously by political continuity and practical flexibility.
