In every historical period man makes attempts to gain control over the world
of nature in order to create the best possible conditions for their day-to-day existence.
Yet it happens that an individual’s endeavours do not bring the intended and
expected results. As a consequence people experience a series of difficulties they
do not always find easy to deal with. In such a situation a human being looks for
solutions which will allow them to find their place yet again in different fields of
life, help them carry out their plans and satisfy their needs.
This text presents the ways in which people have created theatre to cater for their
needs over the centuries, how they have made use of it and how it may be of help
to them today in their daily lives.
