  • Vorführen und Verführenby Lutz Ellrich

    transcript 2014; US$ 34.60

Sie reanimieren das Vergangene,... more...

    transcript 2014; US$ 29.19

    In der Theater- und Performancekunst lässt sich eine Inszenierungstendenz verfolgen, die sich durch die wechselseitige Sichtbarmachung von Aufführungsteilnehmern auszeichnet. Entsprechend wird der Betrachterblick nicht nur für die visuelle Wahrnehmung, sondern auch für soziale Partizipation konstitutiv. Adam Czirak fragt, inwieweit die Idealvorstellung... more...

  • Theatre and Everyday Lifeby Alan Read

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 53.95

    Alan Read asserts that there is no split between the practice and theory of theatre, but a divide between the written and the unwritten.
