Welcome to the Devising Celebration website.

From improvisation to cultural performance, this site is focused on forms of drama that exists outside of theatrical spaces.

It is designed to be a useful introduction to:

  • the theatre of image;
  • large scale dramatic construction techniques;
  • processional theatre;
  • outdoor performance; and
  • mask, ritual and spectacle.

It contains useful practical techniques as well as a theoretical exploration of the field. If you are interested in finding out more about celebratory performance, carnival, outdoor theatre or site-specific performance it is well worth a look.
