"I believe that all the truly revolutionary theatrical groups should
transfer to the people the means of production in the theater so that the
people themselves may utilize them. The theater is a weapon, and it is the
people who should wield it." –Augusto Boal (1931-2009), founder of
the Theater of the Oppressed
