Cover of “Come Closer”: Critical Perspectives on Theatre of the Oppressed

“Come Closer”: Critical Perspectives on Theatre of the Oppressed (Co-edited with Dr. Ellie Friedland).
Peter Lang Publishers for the series Counterpoints: Studies in Postmodern Theory of Education (Series Editor, Shirley Steinberg). Publication date: June 2011.

Summary: In Come Closer, community activists, scholars, and theatre artists describe their Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) work and how they are transforming TO for new purposes, new audiences, and new settings. Each chapter features a first-person narrative on how the author’s work both honors and transforms the vision of Augusto Boal, whose imaginative response to human oppression offers the world an aesthetic intervention that has the power to move both the oppressors and the oppressed to the possibility of transformative dialogue. Contributors to this important volume center their ideas and their descriptions of their practice within theoretical frameworks, particularly Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed.
