Applied Theatre is a well-established field focused on the social application of the arts in a range of contexts including schools, prisons, residential aged care and community settings. The increased uptake of Applied Theatre in these contexts requires increased analysis and understanding of indications of success and value. Applied Theatre: Understanding Change considers issues associated with developing, delivering and evaluating applied theatre programs. Section 1 discusses the perceptions of funding bodies, practitioners, participants, researchers and policy makers to discover and analyse the relationships between applied theatre practice, transformative intent, and evaluation. Section 2 then extends and contextualizes the discussion by examining key themes through the use of specific practice-based examples drawn from the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Bangladesh. The book is ideally suited to the needs of applied theatre programs in diverse communities and will be the first volume to provide a general yet comprehensive introduction for researchers, students and applied theatre workers interested in the issues and approaches to support the delivery of high quality work in applied theatre. It will be immediately relevant to researchers on large-scale projects as well as those undergoing research training in Higher Research Degree programs.
