  • Teatro campesino se llama tanto al modelo teatral como al grupo de teatro callejero que, nacido en 1965 como guerrilla pacífica en la huelga de agricultores mexicanos en California, evolucionó a partir de 1970 hacia planteamientos profesionales y contenidos religiosos, nacionalistas y político-humanitarios. Su líder, desde su creación, fue Luis Váldez. Como estilo de teatro funde claves populares de la tradición cultural mexicana con elementos de la Commedia dell'Arte, renovados con técnicas de la dramaturgia del siglo XX como las piezas didácticas de Brecht y los planteamientos y experiencias del agit-prop de Erwin Piscator y de grupos como la San Francisco Mime Group. Se incluye dentro del llamado teatro chicano, con el que en ocasiones se identifica creando cierta confusión. (es)
