Performance Analysis: An Introductory Coursebook
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.
