Community theatre is an important device for communities to collectively share stories, to participate in political dialogue, and to break down the increasing exclusion of marginalized groups of citizens. It is practiced all over the world by growing numbers of people. Eugene van Erven, who is one of the world's foremost experts on Asian political theatre, has now put together the first comparative study of the work and methodological traditions that have developed in community theatres around the world. It's an incredibly wide ranging study based on van Erven's own experiences working with community theatre groups in six very different countries.
Includes a unique video record of van Erven's journey, specially produced to accompany the book.

Industry Reviews

"I know of no other book like it and van Erven is certainly the right person for the job, given his background in political and popular theatre and his geographically extensive research." -Mariellen Sandford, NYU "The tie-in with video broadcast will allow this material to be really useful for educational purposes." -Carol Fisher Sorgenfrei, UCLA "A book along these lines is certainly one that would be welcomed by many professional academic practitioners throughout the world." -Baz Kershaw, University of Bristol
