Theatre for Development: A Guide to Training.
Byram, Martin L.
This booklet is about training extension workers, adult educators, and theater artists for a program called Theatre-for-Development. It is designed for those interested in using, and training others to use theater as a tool for community education and mobilization. The contents primarily are based on the author's experience of training extension workers in Swaziland. Emphasis on training involves getting participants directly involved using relevant skills and ideas in a community situation during a workshop. This booklet describes methods for trainers to adopt in particular situations. Six primary steps in training that are listed and described in detail are: setting-the-scene; information gathering; data analysis; story creation and improvisation; performance and discussion; and follow-up. Illustrated examples are provided throughout the book. Contains 12 references. (JAG)
