Protecting the environment should be a priority of every theatrical production, but it can be challenging to mount an environmentally-friendly show with limited time, resources, and information. A Practical Guide to Greener Theatre: Introduce Sustainability Into Your Productions not only gives you the information you need to make greener decisions, but provides you with practical, workable solutions. You will learn how to assess and improve every production area - from costuming and painting, lighting and technical direction, to administrative offices and the rehearsal process. Checklists, examples of successful strategies, and step-by-step instructions will show you how to identify areas where manageable, sustainable changes can make your productions greener, and advice from working professionals, with experience greening their own productions, will leave you confident that your processes are environmentally sound. Even non-technical people who find themselves responsible for supervising productions will find green solutions that can be instituted with a staff of volunteers or students. Remember: every step toward sustainability is a step forward. * Discover small fixes that will make your theatre productions greener. * Examine ways to introduce greener practices in the design, execution, and strike process. * Explore how introducing sustainability into your theatre productions can save your company time and money. * Learn how sustainability and safety intersect to help protect your workers and volunteers.

  • Jean Giono pour une révolution à hauteur d'hommes -- Une pensée interrompue par l'histoire -- Rêver pour ne plus penser -- Quand l'histoire rattrape le rêve -- Choix de textes de Jean Giono -- Avertissement de l'auteur -- Critique des "temps présents" -- (10 textes tirés de : Lettre au paysan sur la pauvreté et la paix, Les vraies richesses et Le poids du ciel) -- Ecce homo -- (9 textes tirés de : Lettre aupaysan sur la pauvreté et la paix et Le poids du ciel) -- Que faire ? -- (11 textes tirés de : Lettre au paysan sur la pauvreté et la paix, Les vraies richesses, Le poids du ciel, Triomphe de la vie et Les trois arbres de Palzem).
"Les essais de Jean Giono (1895-1970) ? dont on lira ici de nombreux extraits ? ne sont guère connus, il s'y déploie une vision d'un "monde paysan", rempart contre la démesure industrielle et technicienne, où le travail n'est pas l'envers de la vie ni l'économie l'autre nom de la guerre, et qui ouvre à une humanité possédée par l'argent la possibilité de se réapproprier ses savoir-faire en même temps que la joie de vivre. Sans chercher à masquer les oppositions entre une pensée marquée par les circonstances historiques et suspectée de passéisme et le mouvement des objecteurs de croissance, Édouard Schaelchli met en lumière les affinités profondes entre la "révolution d'hommes" voulue par Giono et la vision du monde incarnée par les luttes du Larzac naguère, de Notre-Dame-des-Landes aujourd'hui."--P. [4] of cover.

  • Introduction
  • Historical and theoretical foundations
  • Starfish one by one : education for young women in Guatemala
  • Appropriate rural technology institute : clean energy access in India
  • Population media center : family planning and reproductive health in Ethiopia
  • Conclusion. Sustaining women's participation through applied theatre.
Though development researchers have proven that the participation of women is necessary for effective sustainable development, development practitioners still largely lack culturally appropriate, gender-sensitive tools for including women, especially women living in poverty. Current tools used in the development approach often favour the skill set of the development practitioner and are a mismatch with the traditional, gendered knowledge and skills many women who are living in poverty do have. This study explores three case studies from India, Ethiopia, and the Guatemala that have successfully used applied theatre for women's participation in sustainable development. This interdisciplinary book has the opportunity to be the first to bring together the theory, scholarship and practice of theatre for women's participation in sustainable development in an international context. This work will be of great interest to scholars and practitioners in a wide variety of fields who are looking for creative solutions for utilizing the contributions of women for solving our global goals to live in a sustainable way on this one planet in a just and equitable manner.

Wendell Berry's poetry, fiction, and essays persistently ask the question: How can we live meaningful lives in a consumer driven, fragmented age? His honest search for health in the midst of disease has garnered attention and discussion in both conservative and progressive circles. "Wendell Berry and the Cultivation of Life" thoroughly examines Berry's main themes of community, place, and conservation. It considers the power of Berry's vision and the ways in which his account of the world resonates with the biblical narrative. Pastors, students, professors, and laity will discover in this book how to flesh out Berry's worldview and foster a culture of life in their neighbourhoods, churches, and schools.
