¿Y Los De Teatro Cuándo Vuelven? The Future of Internationalised Applied Theatre in Nicaragua
Sadeghi-Yekta, Kirsten
Research in Drama Education, v22 n2 p270-281 2017
This article looks at the concept of "internationalised applied theatre" within Nicaraguan non-profit arts organisation Movimiento Teatro Popular Sin Fronteras (Movitep-SF). It examines the push-and-pull factors between local sovereignties and the international aid industry, and shows how this interaction occurs on a micro-level between the commissioning and execution of annual theatre festivals within Movitep-SF. More specifically, this article provides a discussion of how the international aid industry has been controlling the aesthetic discourses and social outcomes of "teatro popular." I argue that the manifestation of theatre due to the conditionality of foreign aid agendas serves neither the art form nor the community in the long term.
