The Playful Revolution: Theatre and Liberation in Asia Paperback - 1992

by Eugene Van Erven


From the publisher

"�The Playful Revolution is an entertaining journal.... exemplary... " --Illusions

"�The Playful Revolution breaks new ground by documenting developmental theatre in Asia in its current socio-political and economic ethos... " --New Theatre Quarterly

"[T]his book is the account of a personal journey through Asia, a written documentary of a quest to find political theatre that really works and that possesses a vitality and passion that the contemporary Western theatre seems to have lost." --from the book

In this groundbreaking book, van Erven reports on the liberation theatre movements throughout Asia, which include a diverse collection of creative artists whose politics range from liberal to revolutionary but who all share a common goal of using grass-roots theatre as an agent of liberation.
