Theatre for Development: An Introduction to Context, Applications and Training

by Kees Epskamp - £26.99  Zed Books Ltd (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781842777336 | ISBN 10: 1842777335

Written by a leading authority on the subject, this book provides students with an introduction to the theory and practice of Theatre for Development. Since the 1970s, TfD has established itself as a process through which communities can address their self-development through participation in theatre practice. From its beginnings in sub-Saharan Africa, the Indian subcontinent and Latin America, TfD has now spread across the globe as an effective development strategy.
 
The author examines TfD within the context of evolving development theories and practices, including participatory approaches that encourage individuals and communities to transform themselves from the objects into the subjects of their own development. The book is illustrated with case studies taken from around the world, and from many different development sectors, including health, literacy and voter education.
 
This book is recommended to academics and students in the fields of theatre and development, development planning, cultural practice, performance theory, theatre and politics.
