Immersive Theater and Activism: Scripts and Strategies for Directors and Playwrights
Nandita Dinesh (Author)
Immersive Theater and Activism is both a book of plays, and a book about writing and staging plays for Immersive Theater. Through the creation of scripts that place spectator-actors in less explored scenarios within juvenile detention, wartime interventions, and immigration processes, this book provides practical strategies for directors and playwrights who work with immersive aesthetics. Although this book is framed by a particular approach to Immersive Theater, its ideas will be useful in the creation and performance of any theatrical and pedagogical effort that is less conventional in its use of audience participation. Ultimately, Social Activism & Immersive Theater puts forward scripts and strategies that will help practitioners create theatrical environments that are immersive and pedagogical; aesthetically evocative and politically provocative; simple and complex.
