Theatre & Protest

by Lara Shalson - £6.99  Palgrave Macmillan (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781137443090 | ISBN 10: 113744309x

How does protest engage with theatre? What does theatre have to gain from protest?
 
Theatre and protest are often closely interlinked in the contemporary cultural and political landscape, and the line between protest and performance can be difficult to draw. Yet this relationship is also beset with doubts about theatre's capacity to intervene in the social world. This fresh and insightful text thinks through the intersections and tensions between theatre and protest.
 
Exploring the cross-fertilization of international theatre and protest across the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, Lara Shalson illuminates how and why these two are mutually influencing and enriching forms.
