Monica Prendergast, Juliana Saxton
Intellect, 2009 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 224 pages
Applied Theatre is the first collection to assist practitioners and students in developing critical frameworks for their own community-based theatrical projects. The editors draw on thirty case studies in applied theatre from fifteen countries--covering a wide range of disciplines, from theatre studies to education, medicine, and law--and collect essential readings to provide a comprehensive survey of the field. Infused with a historical and theoretical overview of practical theatre, Applied Theatre offers clear developmental approaches and models for practical application.
