|Publication Year:||2015||Title:||All the Lights On|
|Michelle Hensley, founder of Ten Thousand Things Theater in Minneapolis, shares more than twenty years of her company's nationally unique work bringing professional theatre to those in prisons, homeless shelters, adult education centres, and rural areas, as well as the general public. More than a chrological history, All the Lights On is also about the radiant power of theatre. In this articulate and compelling book, Hensley distils what n-traditional audiences, along with the conditions her artists must perform under to reach them, have taught her about Brecht, the Greeks, Shakespeare, musicals, and the essence of what is necessary to make vibrant and essential theatre. Her experiences lead her to conclude that theatre artists become better and the art form itself much richer when everyone is included in the audience. In Ten Thousand Things productions, people from very different ecomic classes sit next to each other in the round and often experience unexpected connections with each other. Hensley writes in the introduction, Not only do we have a chance to experience the multiple viewpoints of many characters in the play, but with all the lights on, we are able to consider the differing viewpoints of the other audience members seated around the circle. It all serves to increase, just a little, the radiance of our world .|
