Collective creation - the practice of collaboratively devising works of performance - rose to prominence not simply as a performance making method, but as an institutional model with profound social, political, and ethical implications. Tracing a lineage from explorations of collective creation in the work of Meyerhold, Stanislavsky, Copeau, St. Denis, Piscator, Reduta, Grotowski, A History of Collective Creation demonstrates that collective creation played a pivotal role in the evolution of the modern theatre. Examining collective and devised theatre practices in Europe and North America, the contributors explore collective creation's roots in the theatrical experiments of the early twentieth century, emerging just after the rise of the modern director.
