Theatre practitioners have often underpinned their training and performance practices with principles. Those principles can often be defined and described as being philosophical in nature and focus.

By tracing the parallel between the forms that philosophical writing adopted and their corresponding dramatic visions, this group strives to demonstrate how the genre-specific relations between philosophy and drama reveal the respective role that suffering plays in the act of understanding.See More
