Applied Theatre: Research is the first book to consolidate thinking
about applied theatre as research through a thorough investigation
of ATAR as a research methodology. It will be an indispensable
resource for teachers and researchers in the area. The first
section of the book details the history of the relationship between
applied theatre and research, especially in the area of evaluation
and impact assessment, and offering an examination of the
literature surrounding applied theatre and research. The book then
explores how applied theatre as research (ATAR) works as a
democratic and pro-social adjunct to community based research and
explains its complex relationship to arts informed inquiry,
Indigenous research methods and other research epistemologies. The
book provides a rationale for this approach focusing on its
capacity for reciprocity within communities. The second part of the
book provides a series of international case studies of effective
practice which detail some of the key approaches in the method and
based on work conducted in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and
the South Pacific. The case studies provide a range of cultural
contexts for the playing out of various forms of ATAR, and a
concluding chapter considers the tensions and the possibilities
inherent in ATAR. This is a groundbreaking book for all researchers
who are working with communities who require a method that moves
beyond current research practice.
