Collective Creation, Collaboration and Devising (print) by Bruce Barton and Ric Knowles

Volume 12 in the series Critical Perspectives on Canadian Theatre in English

“As the essays in this collection illustrate, the proximate positioning of concepts can be as illuminating as that of living bodies in performance. Inserting a fresh consideration of collaboration between the easily conflated terms collective creation and devising calls for a reconsideration of all three concepts, in isolation and in conversation, in abstract idealization and in concrete historical applications.” —from the introduction
