Heroism and heroic action in applied and social theatre: a selection of provocations from TaPRA's Applied and Social Theatre working group

Dave Calvert

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


A collection of short papers has been developed from provocations presented at the Theatre and Performance Research Association (TaPRA) conference,3–5 September 2014, hosted by Royal Holloway, University of London. The papers have been jointly edited by Sylvan Baker, Dave Calvert, Alison Jeffers and Katharine Low, the co-convenors of TaPRA’s Applied and Social Theatre working group. The four authors - Katie Beswick, Kay Hepplewhite, Lisa Woynarski, and Maja Milatovic-Ovadia - are members of the working group and offered their provocations in response to the working group’s conference theme of heroism and heroic action, a theme which was already provocative in its own right.
