Originally, the technique was developed by Augusto Boal (1931-2009) as a political tool for social change (part of the Theatre of the Oppressed), but it has also been widely adapted for use in educational contexts. This technique breaks through the barrier between performers and audience, putting them on an equal footing. It enables participants to try out courses of action which could be applicable to their everyday lives.
