Theatre and Human Rights

by Paul Rae - £6.99  Palgrave Macmillan (2009)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780230205246 | ISBN 10: 0230205240

Act of violence or show of strength? In a world of spectacular suffering and power plays large and small what is theatre's role in protecting human dignity?
 
With its impassioned plays, inspired activism and outspoken artists, the theatre has long provided a venue for promoting and practising human rights; but is this always to the good? Today the relationship between theatre and human rights is not only vital, but complex and contested. Drawing on an international range of examples, this short, sharp and timely book outlines the key features of the debate and offers a critical take on where it should go next.
