„In its most archaic sense, theatre is the capacity possessed by human beings—and not by animals—to observe themselves in action.“

—  Augusto Boal Brazilian writer 1931 - 2009
Context: In its most archaic sense, theatre is the capacity possessed by human beings—and not by animals—to observe themselves in action. Humans are capable of seeing themselves in the act of seeing, of thinking their emotions, of being moved by their thoughts. They can see themselves here and imagine themselves there; they can see themselves today and imagine themselves tomorrow. This is why humans are able to identify (themselves and others) and not merely to recognise.
