“If you read this book, you will learn more about psychological, psycho physiological, and anthropological related art, theoretical fields of knowledge in relation to human performativity. If you are a theatre person, you may not have thought that these fields of knowledge play a role in your daily work, or if you did, you may not have known their interrelationships and science. If you come from the world of the humanities, you may have always thought that theatre, in its various forms, could be a subject for scientific study, but you may not have yet come across a study that summarizes the relevant knowledge.”
The niche publication is a comprised theory, regards, techniques and exercises helping to establish inclusive, small scale, democratic groups for any purpose as resources of mental
and physical health, personal growth, creativity, reason and collective wisdom in rural, remote or isolated environments.
According to our analysis there is a great need to explain and demonstrate evidences of theatre’s positive impact on mental health, life-quality and social stability.
The book was created under the coordination of the partner Utcaszak Színházi Alkotó Közösség and written by Balázs Simon with the support of Gabriella Molnár-Keresztyén, and based on the contribution of every partner. Find out more about the translated versions on our website.
