We believe books such as this represent a new and exciting lexicon in the sharing of human knowledge. This particular book is a collaboration focused on History of theatre.More info: In his pioneering study of Yoruba theatre, Joel Adedeji traced its origins to the masquerade of the Egun or Egungunoud and red, rarely applauding the actors, but always shouting insults and booing. Because the audience was so loud, much, the "cult of the ancestor." The traditional Egun rite, which is controlled exclusively by men, culminates in a masquerade in which ancestors return to the world of the living to visit their descendants. In addition to a basis in ritual, Yoruba theatre can be "traced to the 'theatrogenic' nature of a number of the deities in the Yoruba pantheon, such as Obatala the god of creation, Ogun the god of creativeness and Sango the god of lightning" whose worship is imbricated "with drama and theatre and their symbolic and psychological uses."
