Welcome to the website of Till Baumann. Here you will find texts and photos on emancipatory theatre practice, information about my projects and interesting links to other projects and theatre practitioners.
I work with interactive and dialogical theatre approaches, which invite to critical reflection of reality. Theatre can put into question realities. It can support us in our search for alternatives to the status quo and can be a – beautiful – language, in which we can question what seems to be obvious. Theatre gives us the possibility to rehearse the transformation of reality. My main focus is the Theatre of the Oppressed of the Brazilian theatre practitioner Augusto Boal, that I got to know at the end of the 90s at Centre of Theatre of the Oppressed (CTO-Rio) in Rio de Janeiro.
In many workshops and projects and in collaboration with different colleagues we have been developing different practices and approaches such as TheaterDialog, Political Action Theatre and Human Rights Theatre.
