Overview

Community Performance: An Introduction is a comprehensive and accessible practice-based primer for students and practitioners of community arts, dance and theatre. It is both a classroom-friendly textbook and a handbook for the practitioner, perfectly answering the needs of a field where teaching is orientated around practice.

Offering a toolkit for students interested in running community arts groups, this book includes:

  • international case-studies and first person stories by practitioners and participants
  • sample exercises, both practical and reflective
  • study questions
  • excerpts of illustrative material from theorists and practitioners.

This book can be used as a standalone text or together with its companion volume, The Community Performance Reader, to provide an excellent introduction to the field of community arts practice. Petra Kuppers has drawn on her vast personal experience and a wealth of inspiring case studies to create a book that will engage and help to develop the reflective community arts practitioner.
