The radical in performance : between Brecht and Baudrillard by Baz Kershaw( Book )
16 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 491 libraries worldwide
The Radical in Performance investigates the crisis in contemporary theatre, and celebrates the subversive in performance. It is the first full-length study to explore the link between a western theatre which, says Kershaw, is largely outdated and the blossoming of postmodern performance, much of which has a genuinely radical edge. In staying focused on the period between Brecht and Baudrillard, modernity and postmodernism, Baz Kershaw identifies crucial resources for the revitalisation of the radical across a wide spectrum of cultural practices. This is a timely, necessary and rig

Theatre ecology : environments and performance events by Baz Kershaw( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 257 libraries worldwide
Here the author presents this study into the relationships between performance, theatre and environmental ecology. What are the challenges to theatre and the purposes of performance in an ecologically threatened world? How might ecological understandings refigure the interactions of theatre and performance? Is there a future for theatre as an ethically and politically alert art through environmental action? This work gets to grips with such questions by investigating an eclectic international sample of environments and performance events, in theatres and beyond. It proposes that performance is a peculiarly twenty-first century addiction which may be at the root of global warming. Addressing this possibility head-on, it reaches for pathological hope in historical theatre at the end of its tether and rumbles the contemporary paradigm of performance for signs of eco-sanity. Recognising the future is always before its time, the book is a paradoxically ironic tract for survival at the start of a fresh ecological era

The Cambridge history of British theatre ( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
Volume One of The Cambridge History of British Theatre begins in Roman Britain and ends with Charles II's restoration to the throne imminent. The four essays in Part One treat pre-Elizabethan theatre, the eight in Part Two focus on the riches of the Elizabethan era, and the seven in Part Three on theatrical developments during and after the reigns of James I and Charles I. The essays are written for the general reader by leading British and American scholars, who combine an interest in the written drama with an understanding of the material conditions of the evolving professional theatre which the drama helped to sustain, often enough against formidable odds. The volume unfolds a story of enterprise, innovation and, sometimes, of desperate survival over years in which theatre and drama were necessarily embroiled in the politics of everyday life
