AbstractActing Alone: a solo performance that explored how social and political engagement in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict might be created through the performer/audience relationship. Drawing on practice as research and data gathered from an extensive tour, this article examines the complexities of creating human rights theatre for a by-stander or tritagonist audience to create engagement, discourse, and agency. Acting Alone used verbatim and autobiographical material to create a theatrical immediacy through which the audience, as by-standers, were invited to cross the dramaturgical divide to engage actively in the Israeli/Palestinian conflict exploring the question – can one person make a difference?
