Abstract

Since 1970, the American-born Israeli director and acting teacher Nola Chilton has used documentary theatre to critique Israeli myths and to provide a space where groups generally excluded from the Israeli stage—Arabs, women, the poor, the elderly—can be seen and heard. Chilton's pioneering "theatre of testimony" bears a striking resemblance to recent documentary theatre practices proliferating in the U.S. and Europe.
