Bibliographic information


"As performance studies continues to widen theatre curricula, this significant anthology offers faculty a means of integrating 'new' theories into 'old' practices...As the editors intend, I hope this long-overdue book will stimulate the necessary conversations not only about new pedagogical theories and methods, but also about reconfigurations of live theatre itself for the twenty-first century." - Jeanne Klein, Theatre Topics
