Description:

I am convinced that the book Applied Theatre - like applied theatre itself - can unleash us from our constrained visions of what the arts in general, and the theatre in particular, can be, and of what they can help us become. - Tom Barone, Arizona State University Applied theatre is both a term and a movement that's gathering momentum. The movement springs from the desire to change or transform human behavior through the medium of theatre. In this book, Philip Taylor offers strategies for using theatre to raise awareness, propose alternatives, provide healing, and implement community change. As he demonstrates, applied theatre teaches us to teach others, helps communities deal with issues, and gives voice to the views of the silent and the marginal. In numerous examples, Taylor shows exactly how the theatrical art form is being harnessed to help communities question aspects of who they are and what they aspire to be.
