A theatre practitioner is someone who creates theatrical performances and/or produces a theoretical discourse that informs of 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 also refers to one who practices theatre. An individual who goes to see theatre productions may be called a patron, or theatre-goer.WEB,weblink the definition of theatre-goer, www.dictionary.com, en, 2019-02-13, The term was not ordinarily applied to theatre-makers prior to the rise of modernism in the theatre. Instead, theatre praxis from Constantin Stanislavski's development of his system is described through Vsevolod Meyerhold's biomechanics, Antonin Artaud's Theatre of cruelty, Bertolt Brecht's epic, and Jerzy Grotowski's poor theatre. Contemporary theatre practitioners include 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 by their job title as theatre jobs didn't likely change once you entered into them in the early development of theatre.
