Engineers of the Imagination - The Welfare State Handbook

Engineers of the Imagination - The Welfare State Handbook $27.99

Tony Coult & Baz Kershaw

Published by Methuen

Since its foundation by John Fox in 1968, Welfare State International has developed a unique form of celebratory theatre that reaches popular audiences through remarkable combinations of archetypal and contemporary imagery

This handbook is a guide to the basic techniques of the company's work - the making of processions; large scale puppets and sculptures; fixed structures; fire and ice technology; shadow puppets; processional theatre and dance music

It's all set in a context that explains the thinking behind the work and describes some past Welfare State International events

This is first and foremost a practical book rather than an academic treatise

"Welfare State International are brilliant at making an audience of strangers into a community" ~ Guardian
