Applied Theatre: International Case Studies and Challenges for Practice
1 Jan 2010
"Applied Theatre" is the first study to assist practitioners and students to develop critical frameworks for planning and implementing their own theatrical projects. This reader-friendly text considers an international range of case studies through discussion questions, practical activities and detailed analysis of theatre projects globally. Saxton and Prendergast provide a historical and theoretical overview of practical theatre and conclude each case study with useful suggestions for hands-on activities and additional readings. Case studies cover a wide range of disciplines from theatre studies to education, medicine and law. The book encourages students and practitioners to acquire a deeper, more concrete understanding of applied theatre.
