Fletcher, John
Theatre Topics, v13 n2 p189-203 Sep 2003
Contends that community-based theatre (CBT) can productively redefine the parameters of what "political performance" can mean. Draws on the work of community-based performance artist Tim Miller and on the author's experience as a dramaturg to suggest that artists and scholars must develop a revised idea of what constitutes activist democratic practice. Concludes CBT practices provide promising models for an activist theatre interested in exploring political communities. (PM)
