This module will bring a historicising perspective to themes, modes and methodologies of community performance as it continues to be understood today. The module will examine the work of theatre practitioners, for example Lilian Baylis, Joan Littlewood and Ewen McColl, who have engaged in the making of theatre by, with, and for the people. Students will be introduced to the work of theatre companies and collectives, for example, GRAEAE, Prof. Dogg's Troupe, in an examination of the social, economic and political context of their work and how this shapes contemporary applied performance practice.
