The book examines the creative processes of eight theatre companies making devising-based performances: The People Show, Station House Opera, Shunt, The Red Room, Faulty Optic Theatre of Animation, theatre O, Gecko and Third Angel.
In a context of collapsing certainties about Europe’s economic and political system, the resurgence of actions towards collective responsibility-making, the timing of this book is perfect. Czarnecki springs open trapdoors back into childhood imagination and causes us to look again at how we address issues of human responsibility to each other and to the world which we hold in common. This is art that responds to the often white-coated ‘cleanliness’ of scientific research.
