"It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing": Some Questions on Participatory Theatre, Evaluation, and Impact.
Research in Drama Education, v5 n1 p101-04 Feb 2000
Discusses problems that arise in evaluating social participatory art. Contends that concentrating solely on the social policy function during project development can have the effect of drying out the artistic content of the work. Proposes that evaluation processes are needed, but they must evolve from the structures of the projects and the needs and ambitions of the participants. (PM)
