Brazilian theater has been a privileged stage for the playing out of divergent approaches to difference and transgression, never more so than during the AIDS crisis. Tentative Transgressions illustrates how theater became an invaluable player in the effort to associate art and education, entertainment and civics, drama and activism. This book received the Roberto Reis Award of the Brazilian Studies Association, 2005; and the Elizabeth Steinberg Award of the UW Press, 2008.
