    University of Iowa Press 2005; US$ 29.95

    The topic of the origins of theatre is one of the most controversial in theatre studies, with a long history of heated discussions and strongly held positions. In The Roots of Theatre, Eli Rozik enters the debate in a feisty way, offering not just another challenge to those who place theatre?s origins in ritual and religion but also an alternative... more...

  • A Theory of Narrativeby Rick Altman

    Columbia University Press 2008; US$ 29.99

  • Narrating the Past through Theatreby Michael Y. Bennett

    Palgrave Macmillan 2012; US$ 43.33

    This cutting-edge title explores how narrating the past both conflicts and creates an interesting relationship with drama's 'continuing present' that arcs towards an unpredictable future. Theatre both brings the past alive and also fixes it, but through the performance process, allowing the past to be molded for future (not-yet-existent) audiences. more...

  • Contemporary Mise en Scèneby Patrice Pavis

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 45.95

    ?We have good reason to be wary of mise en scène, but that is all the more reason to question this wariness ... it seems that images from a performance come back to haunt us, as if to prolong and transform our experience as spectators, as if to force us to rethink the event, to return to our pleasure or our terror.? ? Patrice Pavis, from the foreword... more...

    Intellect 2013; US$ 20.00

    Many commentators have routinely referred to theatre and, to an extent, all forms of live performance as particularly appropriate to the discussion of national identity. Put simply, the act of live performance itself draws attention to the idea that identities are performed and that different versions of identity can compete for our attention or allegiance.... more...

  • A History of Collective Creationby Kathryn Mederos Syssoyeva; Scott Proudfit

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 90.00

    Collective creation - the practice of collaboratively devising works of performance - rose to prominence not simply as a performance making method, but as an institutional model. By examining theatre practices in Europe and North America, this book explores collective creation's roots in the theatrical experiments of the early twentieth century. more...
