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.
