Using Interactive Theatre Techniques to Enhance Communication
By [posts-author-link] on [date]
Published in 1998, this book is a collection of interactive theatre techniques designed to give educators, community workers, youth and others tools to engage in community dialogue and problem solving. It follows an arc, beginning with warmup and bridge activities designed to first build trust, focus, and skills, then finally culminating in activating material, which demands active participation towards improvising a solution to a question that has been asked.
Techniques are outlined with suggested number of participants, age groups, the basic idea, possible variations and additional thoughts. Goals include enhancing communication, critically analyzing life situations, and utilizing multiple perspectives.
