Few have had quite as much impact in both the academy and in the world of theatre production as Richard Schechner. For more than four decades his work has challenged conventional definitions of theatre, ritual and performance. When this seminal collection first appeared, Schechner's approach was not only novel, it was revolutionary: drama is not just something that occurs on stage, but something that happens in everyday life, full of meaning, and on many different levels. Within these pages he examines the connections between Western and non-Western cultures, theatre and dance, anthropology, ritual, performance in everyday life, rites of passage, play, psychotherapy and shamanism.

Writing/Riding on earlier scholars like Grotowski. Rasa Boxes indeed. That is like saying Nurture/Nature...One line bleeds into another. Another medium television taught this principle of movement confines and Acting from within. America jumps on old bandwagons and rides the country high. That is why there are so many BAD Actors. Review: Sam-o Same-o.
