Performing nostalgia : shifting Shakespeare and the contemporary past by Susan Bennett( Book )

In this trenchant work, Susan Bennett examines the authority of the past in modern cultural experience and the parameters for the reproduction of the plays.

Shakespeare beyond English : a global experiment ( Book )
10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 315 libraries worldwide
Tackling vital issues of politics, identity and experience in performance, this book asks what Shakespeare's plays mean when extended beyond the English language. From April to June 2012 the Globe to Globe Festival offered the unprecedented opportunity to see all of Shakespeare's plays performed in many different world languages. Thirty-eight productions from around the globe were presented in six weeks as part of the World Shakespeare Festival, which formed a cornerstone of the Cultural Olympics. This book provides the only complete critical record of that event, drawing together an internationally renowned group of scholars of Shakespeare and world theatre with a selection of the UK's most celebrated Shakespearean actors. Featuring a foreword by Artistic Director Dominic Dromgoole and an interview with the Festival Director Tom Bird, this volume highlights the energy and dedication that was necessary to mount this extraordinary cultural experiment

Performing environments : site-specificity in Medieval and Early Modern English drama ( Book )
6 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 106 libraries worldwide
"Performing Environments" is an original and important collection examining site specificity in a diverse range of medieval and early modern performance cultures. The chapters take up theories of site specificity more commonly deployed in the study of contemporary work in order to raise new questions and suggest innovative approaches to the study of performance in the historical past. The book provides an introduction to site specific theories as well as a review of the recent 'geographical turn' in medieval and early modern scholarship that frames the studies for both novice and expert readers. Individual chapters explore both theatrical performances and paratheatrical events through the lens of site specificity; together they not only interrogate the role and impact of place on experiences of production and reception, but also demonstrate how genealogies of performance might challenge more conventional literary periodization
