Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Games for Actors and Non-Actors" is a unique piece of writing. Boal's Methods transform theatre into a democratic arena where the spectator becomes the spect"actor"', contributing ideas, taking over roles, and using theatre to confront problems such as sexual harrassment, poor pay, homophobia, and racism. For this first translation into English, Boal has included fresh material to make it the most up-to-date introduction to the techniques of Image Theatre and Forum Theatre available. "Games for Actors and Non-Actors" is a valuable handbook of methods, techniques, games, and exercises, and is a genuinely inspiring work by the world-famous author of "Theatre of the Oppressed," It is designed to help anyone - whether actor on non-actor - rehearse for real life: make the fictional real.
