“Theatre history, then, is for the most part a history of the forgotten and unremarked,” says Alan Filewod, Professor of Theatre Studies at the University of Guelph and the author of Committing Theatre: Theatre Radicalism and Political Intervention in Canada. From caterpillar bouquets, to war reenactments to “state produced agitprop” at the G20 to flash mobs, Professor Filewod discusses the history of political intervention theatre.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
