The Twentieth-Century Performance Reader

The Twentieth-Century Performance Reader

The various authors in this packet all seem to believe that theater should have a more profound goal than to provide entertainment for its audiences. In a few words, can you describe what one or more of the authors (Artaud, Auslander, Grotowski, Brook, or Boal) suggest that theater should accomplish? Please make a specific reference to the text, but also: think generally about all of the readings. Is there a view these writers share about the role of theater?
