Product Description

Review

'[a] brilliant series...these mini paperbacks each give an insightful, focused overview of a key topic...start collecting now.' - Whatsonstage.com

'...Palgrave Macmillan's excellent new outward-looking, eclectic Theatre& ... series.These short books, written by leading theatre academics, do much to reintroduce some of the brightest names in theatre academia to the general reader. Plus, the matrix of references to bigger books soon builds quite a comprehensive catch-up reading list for those of us who graduated more than a decade ago and are interested in where contemporary thinking is at...'
- Guardian Theatre Blog, September 2009, http://www.guardian.co.uk/stage/theatreblog/2009/sep/10/theatre-critics-academics-artists


'A thoroughly engaging read' - Susan Bennett, University Professor, Department of English, University of Calgary, Canada
 
'This book is about us. It documents our presence, articulates our position and questions our experience as casual on-lookers, silent witnesses, engaged spectators, willing participants, in this glorious activity called audience. See for yourself.' - Lois Weaver

'My eye was also caught by Helen Freshwater's Theatre& Audiences, which picks apart the way critics, academics and practitioners describe audience reactions as monolithic, and wonders why theattrical theorists often regard the audience with 'a complex mix hope, frustration and disgust'.' - Plays International
 
'For those of us interested in the knotty paradoxes that sit at the core of theatre's meta-theatrical truth-effects – an ethics that is no longer ethics, a politics that is political for how it is yet to be imagined, an idea of the human that displaces itself the moment it is performed – these pithy glimpses at the enigma of what theatre might be doing when it does itself well are timely engagements with some of the twenty-first century's most pressing philosophical preoccupations.' - Review of Theatre & series, Performance Paradigm
