What is the theatre of Marginalized?

What Is The Theatre Of Marginalized?

Marginality is a sociological term, used to describe the situation of an individual or groups of people who are excluded or persecuted by the dominant culture or power in society. Though this has been a practice from the dawn of history, now this become a phenomenon of epidemic proportions affecting millions of people world-wide as a result of the reincarnation of capitalism in the form of globalization. It is also a philosophical debate over what defines a marginalised community, and from what authority does that power relations come? What are the measures of this kind of classification? What is acceptable within a society and how effective is this process?

The concept of a Theatre of Marginalized is born in this context. In another sense it could also be termed the Theatre of Oppressed. This theatre essentially acts as a means of promoting social and political changes where the audience become ‘spect-actors’ who explore, analyse, perform and transform the reality of their existence. In a way, Theatre of Marginalised is a theatre not only of performance but also of transformation.

The 10th ITFoK with the theme of “Theatre of marginalized’ will see many groups from all over the world, deeply involved in this kind of intense theatre to give an opportunity for art lovers in Kerala and India to have a glimpse of this theatre of the immediate present.
