- David Crespy, University of Missouri, USAQuestions of ensemble - what it is, how it works - are both inherent to a variety of Western theatre traditions, and re-emerging and evolving in striking new ways in the twenty-first century. The Contemporary Ensemble draws together an unprecedented range of original interviews with world-renowned theatre-makers in order to directly address both the former and latter concerns. Reflecting on the ensemble way of working within this major new resource are figures including:Michael Boyd, Hermann Wundrich, Yuri Butusov, Max Stafford-Clark, Elizabeth LeCompte, Lyn Gardner, Adriano Shaplin, Phelim McDermott- and Emma Rice-representing companies including:The RSC- The Berliner Ensemble- The Satirikon Theatre- Out of Joint- The Wooster Group- Kneehigh Theatre- Song of the Goat- The Riot Group- The Neo-Futurists- Shadow Casters- and Ontroerend Goed.All 22 interviews were conducted especially for the collection, and draw upon the authors rich background working as scholar, educator and dramaturg with a variety of ensembles.

The resulting compendium radically re-situates the ensemble in the context of globalisation, higher education and simplistic understandings of text-based and devised theatre practice, and traces a compelling new line through the contemporary theatre landscape.
