Unrehearsed Futures (S3) Ep. #14 | The Separate Artist: Theatre and Community

Whether through funding processes, the paradigms of applied theatre, or the continuing legacy of the romantic and separate artist, theatre practitioners often begin their work already separated from the communities that they intend to serve. Theatre appears to be parachuted into foreign territory, or involved in long-term community relationships that take on a pastoral configuration. In this discussion, we ask how five theatre artists from Sweden, U.K. and Mexico working with communities experience this separation and how it can be addressed.
