Collective Encounters’ report on how the participatory theatre sector is responding to COVID-19, and adopting different models of socially distanced practice. The report explores the challenges of this, and some of the unexpected benefits.
Throughout June 2020 Collective Encounters ran a series of free events exploring how the participatory theatre sector was responding to COVID-19 and the effect lockdown and social distancing was having on participants, participatory theatre makers and their practice.
The events were attended by over 320 participatory theatre makers, creative learning managers, engagement managers, choreographers, drama teachers, lecturers, HE course leads, artistic directors, producers, choir leaders and researchers.
This report documents the findings from these events.
