The Participatory Theatre Timeline charts the development of Participatory Theatre in the UK from the 1960s to the present.
It describes the different theatre/art forms that have been the building blocks for current practice. These entries offer a snapshot description, historical and present day examples and links for further reading. Its purpose is to provide an easy access overview of the important history of this work, in the belief that if we are informed by our past we make better work in the present; that if we understand our history and our roots we can situate ourselves as part of a powerful movement that makes us stronger in vulnerable and difficult times.
It is hoped that the Timeline will be of use to students and practitioners of Participatory Theatre and will inspire them to dig deeper and find out more.
