(agitation/propaganda). A style of theatre derived from early Soviet performance groups, specifically with a communist message. The term generally describes a play or sketch performed expressly to inform the audience of a political situation. There is immediacy about such works, often improvisatory and with cartoon characters or cliche situations, designed to stir the people into action. Agitprop is frequently associated with street and puppet theatre.
