Hamlet and the Bakers Son: My Life in Theatre and Politics (Augusto Boals Memoirs). Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Hamlet and the Baker's Son is the autobiography of Augusto Boal, inventor of the internationally renowned Forum Theatre system, and 'Theatre of the Oppressed' and author of Games for Actors and Non-Actors and Legislative Theatre. Continuing to travel the world giving workshops and inspiration to teachers, prisoners, actors and care-workers, Augusto Boal is a visionary as well as a product of his times - the Brazil of military dictatorship and artistic and social repression and was once imprisoned for his subversive activities.
From his early days in Brazil's political theatre movement to his recent experiments with theatre as a democratic political process, Boal's story is a moving and memorable one. He has devised a unique way of using the stage to empower the disempowered, and taken his methods everywhere from the favelas of Rio to the rehearsal studios of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
About the Author: Augusto Boal is the creator of a system called the Theatre of the Oppressed which is now used by community theaters around the world and taught in most university theater studies courses in the US, UK and elsewhere. He is the author Games for Actors and Non-Actors (1992), Legislative Theatre (1998), Playing Boal (1993) and Rainbow of Desire (1995) all published by Routledge. He lives in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
