Theater of the Oppressed in the 1950ıs.  In Theater of the Oppressed the
fourth wall of traditional theater is abolished and spectators become
Œspect-actorsı. By giving the participants power in the creation of the
action, they are being transformed and prepared to participate in the
theater of life. Spect-actors uncover the root causes of problems and what
factors, externally as well as internally, block them from taking effective
action.
