"Cardboard Citizens’ Artistic Director Adrian Jackson founded the company in 1991. Since then he has directed over 20 productions for the company, devising and writing many of them. As well as producing many Forum Theatre pieces, Adrian has also directed all the company's larger-scale site-specific productions, including Pericles, co-produced with the Royal Shakespeare Company. He has worked as Augusto Boal's translator on five books Games for Actors and Non-Actors, The Rainbow of Desires, The Legislative Theatre, Hamlet and the Baker' Son (Boal's autobiography) and The Aesthetics of the Oppressed. He has led workshops with Boal on many occasions, and they collaborated on The Art of Legislation, an Artangel-sponsored piece of Legislative Theatre at County Hall in London.
"He is also working on his own book, provisionally entitled The Art of the Joker. As a leading expert on the Theatre of the Oppressed, Adrian is a well-travelled teacher and speaker. He has taught Theatre of the Oppressed work in many contexts, throughout Britain and Ireland, and many places throughout the world, including France, Hong Kong, Mauritius, Namibia, South Africa, India, Colombia and Kosovo."
