Ethnotheatre transforms research about human experiences into a dramatic presentation for an audience. Johnny Saldana, one of the best-known practitioners of this research tradition, outlines the key principles and practices of ethnotheatre in this clear, concise volume. He covers the preparation of a dramatic presentation from the research and writing stages to the elements of stage production. He trains participants by suggesting stage exercises and delves into the complex ethical questions of turning the personal into theatre. Throughout, he emphasizes the vital importance of creating good theatre as well as good research for impact on an audience and performers. The volume is replete from excerpts from contemporary ethnodramas, including two complete scripts.
