    Abstract:
    As universal as the theatrical art is, it is usually performed according to certain parameters. And the parameters that shape how a theatrical performance is packaged and presented to the public are in turn determined by a number of factors. Such factors could be economic, infrastructural, cultural, political, social or simply style. Given the above, this essay investigates the Total Theatre style of theatrical production and looks at it vis-à-vis its historical antecedents and its defining characteristics. The essay also attempts to distinguish between the African and Occidental concepts of Total Theatre. Using Temienor Tuedor’s “To Cast a First Stone”, within the descriptive research method, the essay discusses how the Total Theatre style may be applied in performance context. The essay posits that, indeed, Total Theatre is a style of production that resonates with African theatre performance aesthetics, and this is clearly shown in the production under reference.
