Journal of Dharma --> Dialogue and Society -->BOAL’S RECEPTION IN INDIA:

Augusto Boal, the Brazilian theatre personality develops the concept of Theatre of the Oppressed (TO) as a dialogic praxis that uses performance as a participatory space in developing collective strategies to bring about social transformation. This paper explores the interactive aesthetics of TO in the Indian context as applied and amplified by Jana Sanskriti (JS). Using the methods of qualitative research with theoretical and comparative referential axis of dynamic synergetic experience, the paper examines dialogic dimensions achieved by JS during the various phases of its theatrical process towards subverting ‘monologue’ and propagating ‘dialogue’. The pragmatics of JS is investigated to foreground that Mikhail Bakhtin’s theory of ‘dialogism’ attains an empirical expression in the modus operandi of TO, and a dialogic culture is capable of achieving synergetic dimensions leading to sustainable development in the society.
