Jana Sanskriti Summary

Jana Sanskriti by Ralph Yarrow (University of East Anglia, UK)

Regarded by Augusto Boal as the international icon of his vision, Jana Sanskriti are the leading practitioners of Theatre of the Oppressed and Forum Theatre in India and the East.

The group has worked continuously with rural communities in West Bengal since its beginnings in 1985 to reconfigure social and political relationships through theatre, achieving both a solid regional presence and an international reputation.

This book combines:

  • a biography of the group, charting their history, methodology and modes of operation
  • an examination of Jana Sanskriti through the writings of their founder, Sanjoy Ganguly
  • a detailed analysis of their performance events and practices, including the plays collected in Ganguly's Where We Stand (2009)
  • practical exercises and games, taken from Jana Sanskriti's workshops and festivals.

As a first step towards critical understanding, and as an initial exploration before going on to further, primary research, Routledge Performance Practitioners offer unbeatable value for today's student.
