PARANHOS, Kátia Rodrigues. Crossing the ocean: Opinião and Teatro Moderno de Lisboa - resistance and political-cultural contestation in the 1960s. Estud. hist. (Rio J.) [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.49, pp. 31-49. ISSN 0103-2186. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-21862012000100004.
Social theater and engaged theater are denominations that took shape in the midst of a hot debate that took place throughout the end of the 19th century and was consolidated in the 20th century. Their novelty rested on the relationship they have established between theater and politics or even between theater and propaganda. This article approaches the meanings of resistance and political-cultural contestation of the groups Opinião and Teatro Moderno de Lisboa while taking into account the discourses produced on their collective processes of creation, theoretical research and social intervention.
