DARKO LUKIĆ: Introduction to Applied Theatre: Who Owns the Theatre?

Publisher: Leykam International Zagreb, 2016 

To whom theatre belongs? To its owners and founders? To its performers? To the society in which it exists? To all of them? To what extent and degree?

The book offers a concise and articulate insight into a quite extensive and diverse domain called Applied Theatre since the 1990s. It covers a wide spectre of performing practices which have developed since the 1970s (rooted in and based on - according to the book - much older traditions and experience), appearing under the names: community theatre, educational theatre, instructional theatre, development theatre, forum theatre, social theatre, etc.
