Professor Victor Merriman’s ‘Recommended Read’:

Applied Drama/Theatre as Social Intervention in Conflict and Post-Conflict Contexts

Editors: Hazel Barnes and Marié-Heleen Coetzee.

“This stimulating essay collection is both a snapshot of particular concerns, practices and values, and a resource for critical practitioners of applied theatre. It documents interventions across a range of applied theatre and drama, from building-based theatre to therapeutic projects. Well-chosen illustrations take readers into spaces of creation and performance, in which struggles with complex contemporary problems and debates are vividly captured. A common concern for an ethics for today and tomorrow is captured by Coetzee et al., ‘It is easy to hold a gun, but it is far harder to hold a hand, especially that of an enemy’.”
