|PDF - Accepted Version|
This thesis is a case study of L'équipe d'intervention théâtrale participative Mise au jeu, a Montreal-based Popular Theatre company founded in 1991. This case study examines two of Mise au jeu's projects: Jeunesse enJEUX Montréal and Acquis de Droit! Throughout this analysis I identify the strategies they use to support the community members who are involved with the projects. I also analyze the Popular Theatre techniques they have implemented and what impact their interventions have had among the communities in which they have worked. I highlight the use of an inclusive and participatory process that Mise au jeu leads, as well as how they allow the community members to identify issues that affect them. I describe how Mise au jeu builds alliances with other organizations in order to better their chances of achieving their directives and how they addressed local authorities and other community members with the issues that these projects dealt with. This case study is based on documentation, individual interviews, and my personal observations of the projects' workshops and performances.
