*Created by Nobel Prize nominee, Augusto Boal (1931-2009), Theatre of the Oppressed (T.O.) is a form of community-based education using performance-based teaching and learning tools with a focus on social justice and change. Theatre of the Oppressed techniques are practiced all over the world, across disciplines and contexts—in classrooms, communities, with grassroots organizations, and in boardrooms. Any context for community-building, conflict resolution, or deep learning is an opportunity to use T.O. practices. PCC’s own Illumination Project is grounded in T.O. theory and methods.
