Recenzii

“Editors Prendergast and Saxton have, in their second edition of Applied Theatre, created an invaluable repository of examples of various types of Applied Theater from all over the world. Prendergast and Saxton purposefully offer readers the opportunity to pull back the curtain and learn from the successes, mistakes, and sometime failures of seasoned Applied Theater practitioners. . . . The succinct and concise method Prendergast and Saxton use to define terms, methodologies, models, and motifs would be of significant use to the new practitioner looking to learn more about and starting to facilitate Applied Theater. For the more seasoned practitioner it acts as a refresher in the core concepts in our field, and an inspiration regarding the work our colleagues around world are doing, using theater to make their communities and the world more compassionate, just, and critically engaged.”
