My theatre manifesto
Writing a theatre manifesto is an assignment I give to my students on some of my courses. It is essential every now and then think why you make theatre, especially if you are studying to become a professional. Artists alongside the history have written their manifestos and statements, so why not I?!
The why makes the what and how happen.
In my manifesto I bow my head at the feet of my teachers and all the theatre thinkers and doers who have had a great impact on my thinking, e.g. Anne Bogart, Jerzy Grotowski and Antonin Artaud.
