About this item

Applied Theatre: Facilitation is the first publication that directly explores the facilitator's role within a range of socially engaged theatre and community theatre settings. It examines 'who' the facilitator becomes when they facilitate, and how they 'perform' and respond when working with different groups of people often in difficult and challenging circumstances. The book offers a new theoretical framework for understanding facilitation and features a range of writings and provocations by international practitioners, including experienced facilitators working in the field.

Part One offers an introduction to the concept, role and practice of facilitation, the different terminologies associated with the role, and their applications in different contexts and cultural locations. It offers a theoretical and philosophical engagement with facilitation politics, practice and function in contemporary community and educational practices, developing an analysis that furthers academic engagement and facilitator praxis. Part Two illuminates the presence of diversity in the field of facilitation through offering multiple voices, case studies, theoretical positions and contexts (Australia, Serbia, USA and the UK), and applying a range of aesthetic forms: process drama, forum, clowning, playmaking.
