A comprehensive documentation of the activities of the University of Zambia Chikwakwa Theatre. This group used the medium of theatre to help bring about the social changes in the central African nation of Zambia between 1969-1979. What are today known as the "Chikwakwa concepts" have become part of the universal theatre language of the southern African region. This text explores these principals which include: that theatre and politics are inextricably linked in Africa because "cultural discussion is frequently political discussion"; that the socio-political functions of the theatre are more crucial than the entertainment or aesthetic values; and that for theatre to be effective it must be rooted in the traditions of the people.
