Director of the Center for Theatre of the Oppressed and Applied Theatre Arts in Los Angeles, Brent Blair presents a postcolonial guide for cultural fieldwork, based on the techniques and methodologies of Augusto Boal.
“Art,” he says, “particularly theatre, has always played an important role in the public narrative: staging stories of human struggle to analyze our humanity and helping oppressed audiences to devise ways to restore dignity and reclaim power.”
