Making Postdramatic Theatre is a workshop handbook for tutors teaching postdramatic practice and for students and makers devising their own performance work. It extends the range of workshop manuals on devised theatre that are currently on the market by, uniquely, focusing specifically around exercises that can be used for making theatre that is postdramatic. It is compiled of workshop exercises contributed by a range of established UK and trans-European theatre companies and practitioners who tour their work internationally. The book includes: an accessible introduction to Postdramatic Theatre, written by Tracy Crossley; 17 edited exercises or full workshops contributed by 11 theatre practitioners; exercises grouped into chapters on Action, Text, Space and Time, framed with short introductions; boxed interventions from the editors on each exercise, with suggestions for further development and/or cross references to other complimentary exercises in the handbook; practitioner profiles and external hyperlinks to websites and video documentation; hyperlinks that direct the user to other relevant materials on Digital Theatre Plus; annotated Further Reading and Resources section.
