Guerrilla theatre

Guerrilla theatre, generally rendered “guerrilla theater” in the US, is a form of guerrilla communicate originated in 1965 by the San Francisco Mime Troupe, who, in spirit of the Che Guevara writings from which the term guerrilla is taken, engaged in performances in public places committed to “revolutionary sociopolitical change.” The group performances, aimed against the Vietnam war and capitalism, sometimes contained nudity, profanity and taboo subjects that were shocking to some members of the audiences of the time.

Guerrilla (Spanish for “little war”), as applied to theatrical events, describes the act of spontaneous, surprise performances in unlikely public spaces to an unsuspecting audience.Typically these performances intend to draw attention to a political/social issue through satire, protest, and carnivalesque techniques.
