Basically, in my productions the audience is always aware that they are at the theater and that they are watching actors perform a play. By realizing this they must also acknowledge the fact that this play was created by someone and that that person is trying to say something. If they are constantly reminded of the medium, then they can critically examine the content and the message of the piece that exists beneath the surface layer. Most show only show the surface layer and therefor critical thinking is lost.

I've been working out a theory ok. I want to create a theater which causes the audience to think critically about the situation of the characters as well as the situation of their own society and inspire them into action. The technique that I have been brewing in my head is something I call Verfremdungseffekt.
