Environmental and Site-Specific Theatre (print) by Andrew Houston and Ric Knowles

Volume 8 in the series Critical Perspectives on Canadian Theatre in English.

"in every site-specific or environmental theatre project, the artist must spend a lot of time walking around experiencing the site; trying to gain some insight into its inhabitants, its workings, its reality, but also trying to imagine how it might possess a life not yet realized. ...a way of being in the world and bringing to bear a social, political, and historical consciousness upon our navigations through and experiences of lived space." —from the introduction
