This module will introduce students to ideas about how cultural interventions are being used in areas of social development in local, national and international contexts. We will examine how performance has been used to address issues which may include education, health, sexuality, gender, race, disability and social exclusion. The course will consider case studies of theatre work in action, theoretical frames to examine them and current debates which inform and impact upon the field.
