Avant-Garde Performance and Material Exchange: Vectors of the Radical assembles a remarkable group of scholars to explore how the circulation and exchange of "vectors of the radical" shape the avant-garde. Building upon cutting-edge research, the contributors approach the avant-garde in unprecedented fashion, framing it as a transnational, performance-based culture built upon diverse forms of material exchange. Equally important, the contributors conceive performance in highly varied ways—as a formal, historical, political, aesthetic, sociocultural, textual, and theoretical form of human expression—providing readers a richly textured sense of what performance is and what it can achieve. Mapping the movement of scripts, theatre activists, performances, and other material entities around the world, these essays provide unprecedented perspectives on the transnational performance culture of the avant-garde, confirming that the avant-garde was and is a significant presence in our world.
