African theatre( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The urge to create theatre in Africa has far outpaced the desire to document performances, and as a result, those preparing accounts of theatre movements and performance on the continent have very limited resources to work on. 'African Theatre 9' addresses the topic of theatre history and, more specifically, looks at a selection of theatrical movements and events between 1850 and 1950. Drawing on such archived resources as are available, this volume seeks to recover moments from the past by bringing together papers that explore the complexity of the relationships that characterised a century o

"Examines the impact of new media (such as video and YouTube) and the use of multi-media on live and recorded performance in Africa. Includes contributions on dance; popular video, with an emphasis on video drama and soaps from Eastern and Southern Africa, and the Nigerian 'Nollywood' phenomenon; the interface between live performance and video (or still photography), and links between on-line social networks and new performance identities. As a group the articles raise, from original angles, the issues of racism, gender, identity, advocacy and sponsorship."--Cover p. [4]

Theatre and Empowerment Community Drama on the World Stage. Cambride Studies in Modern Theatre( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theatre and Empowerment examines the ability of drama, theatre, dance and performance to empower communities of very different kinds, and it does so from a multi-cultural perspective. The communities involved include poverty-stricken children in Ethiopia and the Indian sub-continent, disenfranchised Native Americans in the USA and young black men in Britain, victims of violence in South Africa and Northern Ireland, and a threatened agricultural town in Italy. The book asserts the value of performance as a vital agent of necessary social change, and makes its arguments through the close examination, from 'inside' practice, of the success - not always complete - of specific projects in their practical and cultural contexts. Practitioners and commentators ask how performance in its widest sense can play a part in community activism on a scale larger than the individual, 'one-off' project by helping communities find their own liberating and creative voices
