Book Description

15 Mar 2001
This revolutionary introductory performance studies coursebook brings together classic texts in critical theory and shows how these texts can be used in the analysis of performance.
The editors put their texts to work in examining such key topics as:
* decoding the sign
* the politics of performance
* the politics of gender and sexual identity
* performing ethnicity
* the performing body
* the space of performance
* audience and spectatorship
* the borders of performance.
Each reading is clearly introduced, making often complex critical texts accessible at an introductory level and immediately applicavble to the field of performance. The ideas explored within these readings are further clarified through innovative, carefully tested exercises and activities.

First Sentence
If there is any common ground to the theories which dominated twentieth-century thought, it is their collective recognition of the distance separating the material world from our perceptions of it. Read the first page

This book is great to have on the shelf, it includes many theories on the subject of performance and has aided me through many modules on my drama degree course in first year! It is a book that I keep going back to and referencing. I would recommend this book to anyone studying Drama as there is a lot of great information and studies within the book. Also very efficent postage and great condition!
