The playwright and writer Augusto Boal achieved fame after developing techniques of what is known as “Teatro do Oprimido”. The proposal is based on breaking with the immobility of the spectators in order to make them interact with the play. Boal was also known for his great political participation during military dictatorship, which made him victim of arrest, torture and exile.
