MetadataShow full item record
Small communities that fall outside the corporate engines of Social developmental strategies are the vibrant baselines that invite and involve local people concerned with development. Therefore, this study explores a community centered approach using theatre as a tool to question and dissolve many of the accepted practices of theatre by creating analytical community participation. This collective participatory meeting created a self-reliant participatory development approach that took local cultural values and practices as a departure point to improve the lives of the rural people. The account of the theatre’s strategy in the dissertation is divided into five chapters. The first chapter provides the introduction, illuminates the objectives of the study and reviews the related literature. Chapter two assesses and validates the methods of the research study while Chapter three identifies and analyses the community problem from the collected field data. Chapter four identifies and discusses the impact of the theatre’s intervention in the community’ social ills. Chapter five provides the summary and stresses the outcomes of a self- reliant participatory process and suggests recommendations that should be undertaken by other theatre practititioners.
