New Book on T.O. & Theatre for Living
This (Spanish language) book is the result of the emotional and intellectual labour of a great many hands, brains and hearts. It contains a total of 45 texts written by 66 practitioners and friends of the Theatre of the Oppressed and Theatre for Living from 30+ countries. All the contributions have emerged from concrete methodological reflections and/or a deep engagement with the interventions, comments and questions made by countless spect-actresses in innumerable theatrical processes across the globe, with the aim to generate mobilizing questions and responses that can strengthen our working with the methods in our respective contexts of struggle. In short, Ensayando el Despertar (‘Rehearsing the Awakening’) is a book that aspires to do justice to the pluriverse of Theatre of the Oppressed practices in the 21st century.
