Theatre is used to describe both theatre based processes and theatre as an event or rehearsed product. Training in these specific thematic areas encompasses knowledge and understanding or specific development needs in developing countries, incorporating practice experience of the barriers to achieving positive change in challenging contexts. Realities in mid and post-conflict states, fragile states and “least-developed” states where poverty and/or traditional cultural practices can hold back ‘development’ as defined by western donors.
