Theatre practitioner is someone who creates theatrical performances and/or produces a theoretical discourse that informs his or her practical work.Milling and Ley (2001, vi, 173) and Pavis (1998, 280). , , . A theatre practitioner may be a director, dramatist, actor, designer or a combination of these traditionally-separate roles. "Theatre practice" describes the collective work that various theatre practitioners do.Pavis (1998, 392). Theatre practitioner, when broken down simply means 'one who practices theatre.' An individual who attends or goes to see theatre may be called a patron, or 'theatre-goer.'WEB,weblink the definition of theatre-goer, www.dictionary.com, en, 2019-02-13, The term is not ordinarily applied to theatre-makers prior to the rise of modernism in the theatre, instead describing theatre praxis from Stanislavski's development of his 'system', through Meyerhold's biomechanics, Antonin Artaud's Theatre of cruelty, Bertolt Brecht's epic and Jerzy Grotowski's poor theatre, down to the present day. With contemporary theatre practitioners including Augusto Boal with his Theatre of the Oppressed, Dario Fo's popular theatre, Eugenio Barba's theatre anthropology and Anne Bogart's viewpoints.McCullough (1996, 15-36) and Milling and Ley (2001, vii, 175). Prior to the use of 'theatre practitioner' to dub those who work in the theatre profession, most individuals were called "thespians," named after Thespis, the Greek poet.WEB,weblink thespian {{!, Origin and meaning of thespian by Online Etymology Dictionary|website=www.etymonline.com|language=en|access-date=2019-02-13}} Or even simply by their job title as theatre jobs didn't likely change once you entered into them in the early development of theatre.
