I recommend this book, Theatre & Protest, by Lara Shalson. It’s a great essay on how theatre can inspire, and be inspired by, protest.
“Could theatre respond differently to protests against it, neither cancelling the production nor, as happens more frequently, evicting protesters as quickly as possible? Such evictions are almost always justified in the name or protecting free speech: protests are shut down in order to allow the performance to go on. Yet, in doing so, the theatre — including the contemporary avant-garde theatre with all of its intention to provoke — also demonstrates that it is unable to accommodate dissent.” — Theatre & Protest, Lara Shalson
