ARTICLES ON AFRICAN THEATRE COMPANIES (article first published : 2006-01-10)

African Theatre: Soyinka, the fifth title in the African Theatre Series, published by Currey, Africa World Press and David Philip aroused unprecedented interest and advance orders ran at an all-time high.

The next issue, due 2006 and entitled African Theatre: Young People and Performance, has been edited by Michael Etherton and constitutes a very distinguished line-up of articles on a seriously neglected area of theatre work. Looking ahead to the 2008 publication, the editors have recognised the need to examine the circumstances under which African Theatre, on the continent and beyond, is currently being produced and presented.

Scholars and students of African theatre are invited to submit articles about the changing patterns of theatre organisation in Africa and for African theatre outside the continent, including suggestions about companies and experiences.

Since the financial, social and political circumstances under which groups operate is of particular importance, potential contributors are asked to reflect on these realities as well as on the impact of the organisational pattern on the work being produced.

Articles should be up to 5,000 words in length, with photographs where appropriate, and need to be submitted by June 30 2006 to james.gibbs@btinternet.com
