The fool in European theatre : stages of folly by Tim Prentki( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why is folly essential to the functioning of a healthy society? Why is theatre a natural home for madness? The answers take the reader on a journey embracing Shakespeare and Jonson, Brecht and Beckett, Buchner and Boal. From Falstaff to Fo via Figaro, this study examines the art of telling truth to power and surviving long enough to have a laugh. Every civilization in every age has discovered the need for fools to expose its excesses and hold its sacred truths up to the light of laughter. In Europe since medieval times the theatre has been a favoured site for these playful antics. This book, by concentrating upon the functions of folly, is able to make exciting and original connections across periods, genres and frontiers. Whether tricksters, clowns, fools or facilitators, life and art throws up figures whose destiny is to make us laugh but, in the act of laughing, to realize that we are implicated in the follies that maintain the injustices and inequalities of living according to systems that rob us of the possibility of becoming fully human. Playwrights have attempted to depict this illusive quality in every age -- Shakespeare's Falstaff, Feste, Lear's Fool; Brecht's Azdak; Fo's Madman; Beckett's double act of Vladimir and Estragon

Applied theatre : development by Tim Prentki( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At once both guide book and provocation, this is an indispensable companion for students and practitioners of applied theatre. It addresses all key aspects: principles, origins, politics and aesthetics in a concise and accessible style designed to appeal both to those who have recently discovered this sub-discipline and to experienced practitioners and academics. Part 1 is divided into two chapters. The first introduces the sub-discipline of Theatre for Development, covering its origins, principles and history, and providing an overview of theatre for development in Western contexts as well as in Africa, Asia, the Indian Subcontinent and Latin America. The second focuses upon theoretical and philosophical issues confronting the discipline and its relationship to contemporary politics, as well as considering its future role. Part 2 consists of seven chapters contributed by leading figures and current practitioners from around the world and covering a diverse range of themes, methodologies and aesthetic approaches. One chapter offers a series of case studies concerned with sexual health education and HIV prevention, drawn from practitioners working in Vietnam, Papua New Guinea, Southern Africa, and China. Other chapters include studies of intercultural theatre in the Peruvian Amazon; a programme of applied theatre conducted in schools in Canterbury, New Zealand, following the 2010 earthquake; an attempt to reinvigorate a community theatre group in South Brazil; and an exchange between a Guatemalan arts collective and a Dutch youth theatre company, besides others"--
