Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A much-awaited collection...Youth and Theatre of the Opressed offers readers guidance on using theatre to transform lives, maximizing theatre's potential as an effective educational tool, and encouraging youth to imagine a more just and democratic future." - TYA Today

'Youth and Theatre of the Oppressed 'seeks to investigate critically the practitioner's praxis and to start a dialogue about the intersections of TO and Youth' (xii), and the editors of this volume follow through on this promise, offering a dynamic collection of essays that document artists' efforts to work against oppression, while acknowledging the complex contexts that shape young people's experiences. . .this volume offers provocative and practically grounded applications of TO specifically aimed at reaching children and young people. The dialogues initiated in this text ultimately invite, if not implore, readers to imagine and create a theatre in which youth can engage political issues and remodel their world.' - Theatre Journal

"The great achievement of this project is its gathering of specific writings by some of the best theorist/practitioners in the movement for Theatre of the Oppressed and Pedagogy of the Oppressed. Chen Alon, Mady Schutzman, Brent Blair, Sanjoy Ganguly, Sonja Kuftinec, Johnny Saldana, many others, and of course Julian Boal - the table of contents alone promises a vigorous and provocative adventure. That it addresses one of the most important and insurgent practices - TO with young people - places it on the 'essential' list for those pursuing liberatory theatre and education." - Doug Paterson, Founder, Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed, Inc. and Professor of Theatre, The University of Nebraska at Omaha
