Augusto Boal's reputation is now moving beyond the realms of theatre and drama therapy, bringing him to the attention of a wider public. Legislative Theatre is the latest and most remarkable stage in his work. 'Legislative Theatre' is an attempt to use Boal's method of 'Forum Theatre' within a political system to create a truer form of democracy. It is an extraordinary experiment in the potential of theatre to affect social change. At the heart of his method of Forum Theatre is the dual meaning of the verb 'to act': to perform and to take action. Forum Theatre invites members of the audience to take the stage and decide the outcome, becoming an integral part of the performance. As a politician in his native Rio de Janeiro, Boal used Forum Theatre to motivate the local populace in generating relevant legislation. In Legislative Theatre Boal creates new, theatrical, and truly revolutionary ways of involving everyone in the democratic process. This book includes: * a full explanation of the genesis and principles of Legislative Theatre * a description of the process in operation in Rio * Boal's essays, speeches and lectures on popular theatre, Paolo Freire, cultural activism, the point of playwrighting, and much else besides.

Since the 1970s, the performance and conceptual artist Suzanne Lacy has explored women’s lives and experiences, as well as race, ethnicity, aging, economic disparities, and violence, through her pioneering community-based art. Combining aesthetics and politics, and often collaborating with other artists and community organizations, she has staged large-scale public art projects, sometimes involving hundreds of participants. Lacy has consistently written about her work: planning, describing, and analyzing it; advocating socially engaged art practices; theorizing the relationship between art and social intervention; and questioning the boundaries separating high art from popular participation. By bringing together thirty texts that Lacy has written since 1974, Leaving Art offers an intimate look at the development of feminist, conceptual, and performance art since those movements’ formative years. In the introduction, the art historian Moira Roth provides a helpful overview of Lacy’s art and writing, which in the afterword the cultural theorist Kerstin Mey situates in relation to contemporary public art practices.

In der Erwachsenenbildung ist die Auseinandersetzung mit Kunst und Literatur wesentlich. Persönlichkeitsentwicklung und Gesellschaftskritik gehen mit Kunst und Literatur unverzichtbar Hand in Hand. Wo aber zeigen sie sich in der Erwachsenenbildung? In welchem Kontext werden sie eingesetzt? Wo liegen ihre Möglichkeiten, wo ihre Grenzen? Diesen und vielen anderen Fragen versucht die vorliegende Ausgabe mit Beiträgen zur Theorie und theoriegeleiteten Praxis nachzuspüren. Vorgestellt werden unter anderem Modelle der Lehr- und Lernbarkeit von Schreiben, künstlerisch-biografieorientierte Lehr-Lernmethoden, theaterpädagogische Mittel, aktuelle Beispiele von Kunstaktionen oder auch feministischer Kunst und Literatur im Bildungseinsatz. In ihrer Gesamtheit zeigen die Beiträge, dass Kunst und Literatur dort einsetzen, wo Bildung und Wissen keine festschreibbaren Sicherheiten bieten. Sie entziehen sich der Begrenztheit einfacher pädagogischer Absicht und erlauben so die Überschreitung objektiver Gewissheiten.

Guillermo Gómez-Peña has spent many years developing his unique style of performance-activism; his theatricalizations of postcolonial theory. In Ethno-Techno: Writings on Performance, Activism and Pedagogy, he pushes the boundaries still further, exploring what's left for artists to do in a post-9/11 repressive culture of what he calls 'the mainstream bizarre'. Over forty-five photos document his artistic experiments and the text not only explores and confronts his political and philosophical parameters; it offers groundbreaking insights into his, and his company's, methods of production, development and teaching. The result is an extraordinary and inspiring glimpse into the life and work of one of the most daring, innovative and challenging performance artists of our age.

This ain't no Dreamgirls," Rhodessa Jones warns participants in the Medea Project, the theater program for incarcerated women that she founded and directs. Her expectations are grounded in reality, tempered, for example, by the fact that women are the fastest growing population in U.S. prisons. Still, Jones believes that by engaging incarcerated women in the process of developing and staging dramatic works based on their own stories, she can push them toward tapping into their own creativity, confronting the problems that landed them in prison, and taking control of their lives. Rena Fraden chronicles the collaborative process of transforming incarcerated women's stories into productions that incorporate Greek mythology, hip-hop music, dance, and autobiography. She captures a diverse array of voices, including those of Jones and other artists, the sheriff and prison guards, and, most vividly, the women themselves. Through compelling narrative and thoughtful commentary, Fraden investigates the Medea Project's blend of art and activism and considers its limits and possibilities for enacting social change. Rhodessa Jones is co-artistic director of the San Francisco-based performance company Cultural Odyssey and founder of the Medea Project: Theater for Incarcerated Women. An award-winning performer, she has taught at the Yale School of Drama and the New College of California.

Das einführende Handbuch Theaterarbeit in sozialen Feldern/Theatre Work in Social Fields will eine künstlerische und soziale Arbeit, die sich immer mehr durchsetzt, fachlich fundieren. Das geschieht zuerst durch die Entfaltung von konzeptionellen und/oder theoretischen Grundlagen unter den Gesichtspunkten eines spielerischen, lebenslangen Lernens sowie der Berücksichtigung von Gesundheitsförderung und sozialer Feldarbeit mittels Theater. Ausführlich wird die Lern- und Lehrpraxis beschrieben. Damit verbunden sind Soziokulturelle Theaterformen und Zielgruppenspezifische Theaterarbeit. Es wird bewusst exemplarisch argumentiert, um den Übergang in weitere Praxis durch die LeserInnen zu erleichtern. Eine Literaturliste gibt Anregungen über die in den Beiträgen verarbeitete Literatur hinaus. In allen Kapiteln wird die im europäischen Kontext erprobte Theorie Praxis-Verbindung eingehalten.
