书籍描述

内容简介

Performance in the Twenty-First Century: Theatres of Engagement addresses the reshaping of theatre and performance after postmodernism. Andy Lavender argues provocatively that after the ‘classic’ postmodern tropes of detachment, irony, and contingency, performance in the 21st Century engages more overtly with meaning, politics and society. It involves a newly pronounced form of personal experience, often implicating the body and/or one’s sense of self.

This volume examines a range of performance events, including work by both emergent and internationally significant companies and directors such as Guy Cassiers, Rimini Protokoll, Elevator Repair Service, Anthony Neilson and Punchdrunk. It also considers a wider range of cultural phenomena such as online social networking, reality TV, sports events and charity galas, where principles of performance are in play.

Performance in the Twenty-First century is a compelling and provocative resource for anybody interested in discovering how performance theory can be applied to cutting-edge culture, and indeed the world around them.
