Creating Meaning through Community Drama: Making Theatre Based on a Community’s Own Stories
This course is designed to prepare students to devise and perform appropriate, theatre-based community interventions based on the community’s own stories. They will gain a theoretical and practical grounding in the study of community theatre processes through which practitioners work in, with and for a specific community. They will intervene using theatre strategies, to interrogate particular interests, problems or issues that the community wishes to share.
