All the Mind’s a Stage: How Theatre and Performance have Shaped Our Very Reality.
For literally thousands of years, people have stood up, moved away from the crowd and told stories. We have in turns celebrated them, despised them, paid them and made them illegal, yet all the while the effect of theatre and performance has been entwined with our very lives. Find out how our societies created the theatre of their time, but also how theatre made its mark on its watchers, even going as far as to change culture itself. Along the way there are lessons about how we can use the same techniques that have been employed by actors since 40,000 BCE to understand ourselves and the world we live in.
