Theatre and Change in South Africa
Geoffrey V. Davis, Anne Fuchs
Harwood Academic Publishers, 1996 - Performing Arts - 336 pages
Can South African theatre continue to maintain its autonomy and exercise its critical role? Can one rethink form and find new content? Can a concept of post-protest theatre be developed? How might theatre contribute to a post-apartheid society? These are just some of the questions addressed in this book.
The real and present difficulties South African theatre is facing, as well as possible future orientations, are clearly shown, at one of the most complex moments of political transition in the history of South African society.
Geoffrey Davis and Anne Fuchs include contributions from playwrights, actors, visual artists, poets, directors, theatre administrators, theatre critics and theatre academics. Their comments and thoughts portray the active process of reflection and reappraisal, redefining their artistic and political aims, searching for new and vital theatrical forms.
