What is theatre? What is performance? What are their connections and differences? What events, people, practices, and ideas have shaped theatre and performance in the twentieth century? And where are they heading next?
The Routledge Companion to Theatre and Performance offers answers to these big questions. It provides an accessible, informative, and engaging introduction to important people, events, concepts, and practices that have defined the complementary fields of theatre and performance studies. Three easy-to-use alphabetized sections include over 120 entries on topics and people ranging from performance artist Marina Abramovi?, to directors Vsevolod Meyerhold and Robert Wilson, The Living Theatre's Paradise Now, the haka, multimedia performance, political protest, and visual theatre. Each entry includes crucial historical and contextual information, extensive cross-referencing, detailed analysis, and an annotated bibliography.
The Routledge Companion to Theatre and Performance is a perfect reference guide for the keen student and the passionate theatre-goer alike.
