“The theater-goer in conventional dramatic theater says: Yes, I’ve felt that way, too. That’s the way I am. That’s life. That’s the way it will always be. The suffering of this or that person grips me because there is no escape for him. That’s great art — Everything is self-evident. I am made to cry with those who cry, and laugh with those who laugh.
But the theater-goer in the epic theater says: I would never have thought that. You can’t do that. That’s very strange, practically unbelievable. That has to stop. The suffering of this or that person grips me because there is an escape for him. That’s great art — nothing is self-evident. I am made to laugh about those who cry, and cry about those who laugh.”
BERTOLT BRECHT, On Theatre
INOBE Theatre envisions to free theatre away from the confines of its traditional platforms of performance and explores its wider implications within our social and educational structures. For this reason we, at INOBE Theatre, perform street plays that touch upon relevant social problems and help students become aware of such social issues by providing them assistance in creating street and stage plays within their respective schools, colleges, and other institutions. Our creative focus is as much on creating new productions as it is on teaching students to use the medium of theatre in transforming spectators’ viewpoints by actively engaging them with the issues in focus.
