Abstract

The study begins with a brief introduction on how theatre emerged in the world, Kurdistan and Koya city. In the beginning, performances were conducted in the outside of the theatre closed halls, on the streets, at parties, occasions and in schools. It is clear that an important and complementary aspect of theatre performance process is the audience. Therefore, when the performances lack audience attendances, crises emerge. In order to reduce the crisis, return the theatre role and make up the audience with theatre; it is imperative to provide another kind and style of performing which can be done by returning to the natural and primitive style of theatre; street theatre. From this aspect, we need the opinion of people on the issue. Therefore, we have conducted a survey in which 100 people from different walks of life, different genders and ages participated. The survey consisted of some questions in which the participants were asked to tick appropriate choices according to their opinions. After that the results of the survey have been shown. In addition to the survey we have interviewed experts and professionals in the field in order to know their views on the issue. Finally, appropriate solutions have been suggested to solve this crisis.
