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 creation's roots in the theatrical experiments of the early twentieth century, emerging just after the rise of the modern director.

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
