Towards the Development of Theatre Practice: The Design/Technology Dimension
Nigerian Theatre Journal: A Journal of the Society of Nigerian Theatre Artistes
This paper examines the practice of theatre in Nigeria and looks at in declining fortunes. It attempts a historical overview of theatre practice and observes that the question of the viability of theatre was not in dispute until the advent of the Nigerian video industry. How did this adversely affect the practice of theatre? What are the reasons that can be adduced for this development? Why is theatre practice on th decline? The paper attempt to decipher the problems and offer suggestions on the way forward; which, in the opinion of this writer, rests on the need for the repackaging of theatrical productions by paying more attention to the design and technology aspect of production.
