Radical Street Performance: An International Anthology

by Jan Cohen Cruz (editor) - £28.99  Routledge (1998)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780415152310 | ISBN 10: 0415152313

The first volume to collect together an extensive array of writings on street theatre around the world from the perspective of scholars, activists, performers, directors, critics and journalists. More than thirty essays, exploring the myriad forms this most public of performances can take: agit-prop, invisible theatre; demonstrations and rallies, direct action, puppetry, parades and pageants, performance art, guerilla theatre, circuses. These essays look at performance in Europe, Africa, China, India and both the Americas. They describe engagement with issues as diverse as aborion, colonialism, the environment and homophobia, to name only a few. An inspiring testimony to this international performance phenomenon, and an invaluable record of a form of theatre which continues to flourish in a televisual age.
