Theatre: Collaborative Acts stimulates creative thinking through its interwoven themes of theatre as culture, collaboration, spatial art, and a dynamic fusion of past and present. The central premise of Theatre: Collaborative Acts is that theatre is entertainment and art. It allows us to escape, relax, and refocus. Theatre also stimulates creative thinking and provokes discussion of artistic, social and ethical questions. Through their study of theatre, students develop lifelong tools to help them enjoy, analyze, understand, read, visualize, and get the most out of many different types of theatre experiences. The text emphasizes the diversity of purpose and effect of theatre, and the collaborative nature of the theatrical process. It requires the efforts of many people with different skills to create theatre.
