The Invisible Theatre

-Never places itself in an illegal position because it does not intend to violate the law. It intends to question the legitimacy of the law, which is a very different matter altogether.

-Every dictatorship is eager to legalize the illegal act that brought them into power.

-The theatre of the Oppressed techniques are meant to help the oppressed;
They are actually their weapons of Liberation.

Excerpts from Augusto Boal's
"The Invisible Theatre"

Fantastic June. We will attempt to exercise each of these points in the future.
Especially points like helping the oppress and using words as weapons of Liberation. As critical educators, it is our obligation to constantly interact with the world in a way that observes, questions, and critically analyzes the functionality of society as well as the wonders of individual human beings. Simply put, it is our duty to exercise our minds to dip below surface details to excavate and bring to light what otherwise would be deemed as complicated and abstract. We gotsta simplify the world, and revolutionize our ways of human communication.
