The Cambridge companion to performance studies by Tracy C Davis ( Book )
23 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since the turn of the century, Performance Studies has emerged as an increasingly vibrant discipline. Its concerns - embodiment, ethical research and social change - are held in common with many other fields, however a unique combination of methods and applications is used in exploration of the discipline. Bridging live art practices - theatre, performance art and dance - with technological media, and social sciences with humanities, it is truly hybrid and experimental in its techniques. This Companion brings together specially commissioned essays from leading scholars who reflect on their own experiences in Performance Studies and the possibilities this offers to representations of identity, self-and-other, and communities. Theories which have been absorbed into the field are applied to compelling topics in current academic, artistic and community settings. The collection is designed to reflect the diversity of outlooks and provide a guide for students as well as scholars seeking a perspective on research trends."--pub. desc

Women and playwriting in nineteenth-century Britain ( Book )
6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Why does historical memory exclude nineteenth-century women playwrights when hundreds worked prolifically across the spectrum of professional theatre, amateur theatricals, and publishing? What might it mean to adjust the collective focus of cultural historians and literary critics so that these women can come into view? This collection of essays, written by a team of leading scholars in the field, undertakes not simply to recover the names and careers of women playwrights but to call into question the whole idea of what a playwright is, what she does, and why it matters. Gender inquiry is the start: destabilizing the category of playwrights loosens the borders of theatre history making it possible to reconceptualize theatre and drama not as products of culture but as social processes dynamically interacting with culture.

Theatricality by Tracy C Davis ( Book )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Polish and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This collection of essays explores the changing connotations of "theatricality" for theatrical performance and everyday life. Six case studies, each written by a specialist in the field, use historically specific circumstances to illustrate how explanations of theatricality relate to political and cultural issues ranging from contemorary gender theory to Confucian philosophy, anti-theatrical prejudices, aesthetics of realism and politicized spectacle. This book establishes the terms of debates for theatricality's place within performance theory."--BOOK JACKET
