For those steeped in contemporary art theory, walking into Zuccotti Park was an uncanny experience. In a kind of historical displacement, contemporary art was at that moment thrown into relief as a distant prefiguration or prophecy of what was now happening in real time, too close for the comfort of the exhibitions, conferences, and catalogues within which the radical aspirations of contemporary art had sought refuge. As an historiographical provocation, one that admittedly borders on the eschatological, it might be said that this moment of passage represents the end of socially engaged art .

Playback theatre is an original form of improvisational theatre in which the audience contribute stories from their lives, choose the actors to play the different roles, and witness their stories come to life, as they are adapted theatrically on the spot. Performances are a joint effort of a team of actors, a musician and a conductor whose role is to converse with the audience and to engage them in dialogue. In the absence of a predetermined script or a score, playback theatre relies on voluntary contributions from the audience promoting the right for any voice to be heard, orchestrating...
