This important contribution to the Theatre And series explores what the possibilities and limits of ‘community’ contribute to our understanding of theatre, and what theatrical practice and representation reveal about the tensions inherent in community settings. Drawing on case studies from wide-ranging locations, from the Middle East, to Latin America and South Asia, the text underlines the plurality of meanings associated with community, as well as the plurality of ways that theatre has engaged with those meanings.

Interdisciplinary in its reach, this is the ideal companion for students of Theatre and Performance Studies with an interest in applied theatre or performance in communities.

  • Part of the critically acclaimed Theatre & series, edited by Jen Harvie and Dan Rebellato

Theatre and Community
Sameness and Difference
Individuality and Collectivity
Efficacy and Agency.
Theatre and Community is a compelling read and an intelligent examination of the meaning of community and how theatre, over time and across continents, has reflected the evolution and meaning of community, individuality, and collectivity. Central to the argument that Fisek makes is the tension between efficacy and agency in theatre work inspired by community engagement. To bring her argument to fruition the author refreshingly moves beyond the dominant Euro-American literature on the topic and includes case studies from the Middle East, South Asia, ancient Greece and the Ottoman Mediterranean region. – Yasmine Kandil, Brock University, Canada
Encompassing both classical and contemporary global exemplars of practice, this account hinges impressively upon fundamental questions and assumptions about concepts of theatre and community. It resonates powerfully with the times we live in. – Simon Floodgate, University of Reading, UK.
