Beschreibung

Specially-commissioned essays explore the element of performance theory known as "theatricality" in six case studies that use specific circumstances to illustrate how the concept of "theatricality" developed. Topics covered include early use of the term; employment of theatricality by other disciplines to describe events; non-Western interpretation of theatricality; and its role in analyzing political and cultural events and philosophies. The book provides an introductory guide for those discovering the complex yet rewarding world of performance theory.

Pressestimmen

'... 'unified' yet multidimensional perspective on an ever-expanding subject ...'. Journal of Theatre Research International 'This new collection of essays, part of the Theatre and Performance Theory series, is a stimulating, erudite, and important volume in the emerging field of theatricality. ... This collection is smart, timely, and, thanks to the sophistication of the contributions, will inform wider debates about historiography, theory, and performance practice as well as setting out important questions and agendas in the field of theatricality.' New Theatre Quarterly
