Synopsis

Theatre and Audience

Theatre and Audience $11.99

Helen Freshwater

Published by Palgrave

What does theatre do for - and to - those who witness, watch, and participate in it?

Theatre & Audience provides a provocative overview of the questions raised by theatrical encounters between performers and audiences

Focusing on European and North American theatre and its audiences in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, it explores belief in theatre's potential to influence, impact and transform

Illustrated by examples of performance which have sought to generate active audience involvement - from Brecht's epic theatre to the Blue Man Group - it seeks to unsettle any simple equation between audience participation and empowerment
