Glimpses of Freedom

The Art and Soul of Theatre of the Oppressed in Prison

By Katya Buchleitner

This book presents the creative approach of Theatre of the Oppressed and its liberating potential within the rigid structures of prisons. Can inner freedom be experienced in oppressive outer circumstances? Is there a kind of freedom that cannot be curtailed by external oppressors? Can a physical space that allows trust and inspires creative expression open spaces of inner freedom? The book seeks to integrate a transrational world-view with political activism, combining the understandings of freedom from spiritual teachers Osho and Krishnamurti with those of two revolutionaries of pedagogy and theatre, Paulo Freire and Augusto Boal.
