    1. I was introduced to the work of Augusto Boal by a woman whom I admire greatly. She is a gardener, a writer, an activist, and a performer. She spent time in Brazil studying Theatre of the Oppressed techniques with landless workers there, and now has brought the techniques and skills she learned there back to the States, where she conducts workshops in the practice, among other things.As an ESOL and writing teacher, I don't always make room in my syllabi for my political work. Many would suggest t [...]

    2. Boal, a man who truly understands the balance between artistry and education, provides an excellent set of instructive methods for theatre practitioners, or indeed, any one interested in using theatre to help colleagues, friends or patients, access difficult elements within their own natures.While I can't speak to this book's validity as a text for artistic therapy, I can say that reading this book sparked such a desire to teach and see these exercises in practice, that it was all I could do not [...]

    3. Augusto Baol who was very much influenced by Paulo friere and his works.Paulo friere who wrote fabulous texts like pedagogy of oppressed,whose very educational model was influenced Hindu concept of advaita (Non duality). Here Augusto baol reinterpret the educational model for theater and also he suggest act as tool for personal liberation and protest and freeing ourselves from the mechanized model of life.I am amazed that adavaita concept can be explored in many interesting way such as this.Augu [...]

    4. A neat index of games. Not all of them are useful in a classroom setting, but can be good for building actors' relationships with each other.

    5. Self help for the perennially pretentious. Seventeen year old me lapped this up, and I still think it's great.

    6. A must-have for applied theatre practitioners! Even though you may not use forum directly in your work. I used a lot of the exercises in the book for inspiration for several forum theatre productions I did in collaboration with Mozambican artists in Mozambique - see more her if you would like to see free films and download free material about forum theatre:interactive-theatreI even had the luck to spend a whole week with Augusto Boal himself and his son Julian Boal for a weeks intensive mastercl [...]

    7. boal's work is fucking inspiring and articulate and exciting as much now as ever. it calls out for continually widening application and integration into theatre-making as well as political struggle and activism (often overlapping). this collection is a little overwhelming in its breadth but serves well as a go-to and resource for facilitators and ensembles as well as game-loversyone interested in putting stories, conflicts, and struggles onstage, demechanizing the body, and using theatre toward [...]

    8. This book is one of the rare few that manages to be both extremely interesting and also extremely useful. As a teacher, I was able to mine it for a wealth of useful activities, but Boal also draws you into thinking about instruction from different angles. The activities have a basis in theory, but they are also deeply grounded in practice, which makes it much easier to put them into action. I was able to adapt the activities more easily and more successfully because Boal had clearly put in a lot [...]

    9. great methodology accompanying boal's "theater of the oppressed"- physical and mental exercises for work with actors /theater actors/social actors etc/

    10. This is a classic text for any Drama teacher - first read it in '95 and I still refer to it and use many of the techniques and games in it now.

    11. based on the work of the Center for the Theatre of the Oppressed, Rio de Janeiro. a primary text for much of my work as a teacher, artist, and scholar.

    12. Augusto Boal is a brilliant People's director and actor who brings theater to the common man to create social change. Used this text in the classroom and during my training days.

    13. Boal is an amazing man. This book only begins to show the inspiration of the man. Everyone interested in the power of theatre must read this.

    14. this book is rocking my world. making me want to find a full-time drama teacher job. but where do those exist?

    15. Sigh. Read it, love it, and then get over it. Living by this book quickly becomes boring, sort of like a very friendly dog; the licking kind. It's better if your second best friend owns it.
