This book is a description, a celebration and an analysis of outdoor theatre, which demonstrates just what a sophisticated art form it is. It provides a practical guide to those who are new to the subject and enables practising performers to additional new insight on their own work. It also provides arts administrators and festival organisers with the information they need to programme outdoor performances successfully. Bim Mason describes some of the less well known methods as well as examining the performance practices of some of the most established British and European companies. He shows how the contemporary scene has been arrived at, and explores the ways in which outdoor performance continues to challenge and dissolve our definitions of theatre.
