ART.ZIP Issue 15
Since 2012, we have been presenting annual theatre-centred editions every year. Theatre in Britain is a highly industrialised artistic conglomeration, and has far-reaching impacts on British society and art. It carries on the humanistic traditions and values of the country, and extends and shapes reflection and understanding of the current society.
In any form of art, if it wishes to maintain its thriving vitality, it is necessary to cultivate its audience and evolve into what echoes with the times—British theatres’ exploration and practice, in this regard, is too fruitful to neglect. They infuse the most creative ideas into productions for the young, arousing in them interests in art and passion for life. In this issue, we focus on British theatre for the young, examining how theatres, creative practices, marketing, humanistic education and audience cultivation are organically interwoven.
