Review:

"The editors and contributors perform admirably at providing fresh content and context to an ever-evolving tradition and practice, thus exposing the creative tension between experimentation and performative exploits. Gems include Laura Cull's use of Deleuze philosophy to posit an ontological approach to reveal creative forces behind the Living Theatre and distinguished scholar and director Jorge Huerta's piece on Chicano contributions (e.g., El Teatro Campesino) . . . Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers, faculty." - CHOICE

"A History of Collective Creation, a groundbreaking historical narrative traces central modernist and postmodern European and North American theatrical movements that have altered and advanced the theoretical foundations of collective and alternative theatre practice. Dr. Kathryn Syssoyeva's lucid historical sensibility together with the scholarly essays included herein, re-explores the historical geneses and critical language that made it possible for these new theatrical voices to revolutionize transnational, collective performativity in an heterogeneous manner." - Roberto D. Pomo, California State University, USA, and co-author of The Longman Anthology of World Drama and Theatre: A Global Perspective

"The essays . . . do provide some fascinating discussions of both lesser-known and fairly famous practitioners who have devised their performances collectively, from the early twentieth century to the present." - Theatre

"A History of Collective Creation addresses an important need in the study of collective creation, devised theatre, and improvisational theatre by illuminating the fact that these methods of theatre-making are not limited to the latter half of the last century." Sean P. Holmes, Theatre Research International

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 276 pages. Dimensions: 9.4in. x 6.3in. x 0.9in.Collective creation - the practice of collaboratively devising works of performance - rose to prominence not simply as a performance making method, but as an institutional model with profound social, political, and ethical implications. Tracing a lineage from explorations of collective creation in the work of Meyerhold, Stanislavsky, Copeau, St. Denis, Piscator, Reduta, Grotowski, A History of Collective Creation demonstrates that collective creation played a pivotal role in the evolution of the modern theatre. Examining collective and devised theatre practices in Europe and North America, the contributors explore collective creations roots in the theatrical experiments of the early twentieth century, emerging just after the rise of the modern director.
