Theatre Luminaries and Their Words

Augusto Boal


“…theatre is necessarily political because all the activities of man are political and theatre is one of them.”
preface to the 1974 edition of  Theatre of the Oppressed


Peter Brook

“We forget that there are two possible climaxes to a theatre experience. There is the climax of celebration in which our participation explodes in stamping and cheering, shouts of hurrah and the roar of hands, or else, at the other end of the stick, the climax of silence – another form of recognition and appreciation of experience shared.” The Empty Space – The Holy Theatre
