Theatre & Mind

Theatre & Architecture

Bruce McConachie, Professor of Theatre Arts, University of Pittsburgh, USA

Juliet Rufford, Research Associate, Victoria & Albert Museum, London, UK

Theatre & Photography

All performance depends upon our abilities to create, perceive, remember, imagine and empathize. Theatre & Mind provides an introduction to the cognitive foundations of theatre studies and argues that key developments in cognitive science actually challenge some of the major assumptions about what takes place in the theatre.

Theatre and architecture are seeming opposites: one a time-based art-form experienced in space, the other a spacial art experienced over time. The book will unpick these assumptions, demonstrating ways in which theatre and architecture are co-constitutive and contextualizing their dynamic and complex inter-relationship historically and culturally.

Joel Anderson, Course Leader, Theatre Studies, Central School of Speech and Drama, UK

April 2012 Paperback

March 2012 Paperback

This book examines the shared conceptual terrain of theatre and photography. Joel Anderson explores the photographing of theatre and performance, as well as the ways in which theatre and photography's shared preoccupation with posing, staging, framing, and – perhaps most importantly stillness, manifests itself.

Theatre & the Visual

Theatre & Ireland

Theatre & Sexuality

Dominic Johnson, Lecturer in Drama, Queen Mary, University of London, UK

Lionel Pilkington, Senior Lecturer in English, National University of Ireland, Republic of Ireland

Jill Dolan, Professor of English and Theatre, Princeton University, USA

Theatre & the Visual argues that theatre studies’ preoccupation with problems arising from textual analysis has compromised a proper, political consideration of the visual. Johnson examines the spectator’s role in the theatre, exploring pleasure, difficulty and spectacle, to consider the implications for visual experience in the theatre.

Foreword by Fiona Shaw

Foreword by Tim Miller

‘In this book Lionel Pilkington tracks with great clarity the complexity of Irish buffoonery, national theatricality and dissent.’ - Fiona Shaw

‘Jill Dolan’s marvelous book demonstrates how central questions of sexuality have been for the modern theatre, explaining the major arguments and debates with great clarity and force.’ - David Savran, Distinguished Professor of Theatre, City University of New York, USA ‘An urgently needed exploration of the deliciously queered formations of desire, gender and love that are conjured abundantly in theatre.

Theatre & Interculturalism Ric Knowles, Professor of Theatre Studies, University of Guelph, Canada

'In an increasingly global context this book engages with the impact culture, politics, economics and postcolonial histories have on intercultural interaction. The author not only signals key texts and debates, but also makes accessible what are often complex arguments surrounding approaches to intercultural exchange.’ - Yvette Hutchison, University of Warwick, UK As human traffic between nations increases and as hybridity becomes more characteristic of cultural production, it becomes imperative to critically reexamine the way cultural exchange is performed. Theatre & Interculturalism surveys established approaches to the topic and proposes new ways of thinking about theatrical flow across cultures. June 2010 Paperback

Often regarded as innately performative, Ireland has been the location for the ‘drama’ of rebellion and anti-colonial insurgency. This book argues that theatre in Ireland is a cultural phenomenon that is not restricted to professional, urban theatre, but is rooted in alternative and competing traditions of popular drama and performance.

‘An excellent book...the writing is extraordinarily lucid, without ever simplifying the issues at hand. The effect is really pleasurable.’ - Nicholas Ridout, Reader in Theatre and Performance, Queen Mary, University of London, UK

Theatre & Sexuality explains the critical validity of using sexuality as a lens for examining theatre’s creation and reception. The book offers clear introductions to sexual identity politics, ways of ‘reading’ sexuality on stage and a select history of LGBTQ theatre, including a reading of Split Britches/Bloolips’ production Belle Reprieve.

Theatre & The Body

Theatre & Education

Colette Conroy, Lecturer in Drama and Theatre, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

Helen Nicholson, Professor of Drama and Theatre, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

Foreword by Marina AbramoviĆ

Foreword by Edward Bond

Bodies are active and dynamic elements of theatre production and spectatorship. They are important concepts as well as objects within theatre. This book examines the rich and complex relationships between the uses of bodies in theatre and the ways in which bodies are culturally imagined and understood in theatre.

Theatre & Education provides an insight into the energy, passion and values that have inspired the most inventive theatre-makers who work with young people in educational settings. It argues that the aesthetic principles and educational ideals that inform theatre and education drive at the heart of why theatre matters.

Interpreting the Play Script

An Actor’s Craft

Playing For Real

Contemplation and Analysis

The Art and Technique of Acting

Actors on Playing Real People

Anne Fliotsos, Assistant Professor of Theatre, Purdue University, USA

‘I am convinced that this book will become an important text for studies in play and script analysis. It promises to draw in various levels of students and theatre practitioners because of its unique introduction of inner contemplation via Zen philosophy and practice. It also lays possibly new and interesting groundwork for further exploration into successful script analysis and acting.’ - Gail Medford, Professor of Theatre Arts, Bowie State University, USA ‘Interpreting the Playscript has a great deal to offer teachers and students interested in analyzing contemporary plays that do not use traditional forms. It is the first book I have seen that devotes significant space to identifying serious methods of analyzing unconventional plays, alongside the most useful methods of traditional script analysis. I have long been looking for just such a text to use in my courses - one that helps to rigorously develop the artist’s response to a script.’ - Shelley Orr, Lecturer, San Diego State University, USA and Past President, Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas One type of analysis cannot fit every play, nor does one method of interpretation suit every theatre artist or collaborative team. This is the first text to combine traditional and non-traditional models, giving students a range of tools with which to approach different kinds of performance.

‘A fascinating insight into the methods, challenges and rewards of taking on roles of people in the public eye.’ - Whatsonstage.com  ‘This book of interviews brilliantly explores what it means for an actor to be playing Freud or Gordon Brown, Lawrence of Arabia or Charles Dickens. The actors’ answers are as various as the people being portrayed but the intriguing problem these interviews investigate is, for the first time, excitingly put centre-stage.’ - Peter Holland, McMeel Family Professor in Shakespeare Studies, University of Notre Dame, USA This is the first book to explore how actors play real people. How do you capture Hitler, Mugabe, or a serial killer? How do you portray living monarchs or political leaders? Is it possible to embody a genius like Mozart or Darwin? With a multiple awardwinning line-up, including Sir Ian McKellen on playing himself in Ricky Gervais’s Extras.

A Cognitive Approach to Spectating in the Theatre

Robert Cohen, Claire Trevor Professor of Drama, University of California, Irvine, USA

‘Whether you’re studying to become a professional or an early-career pro who wants to rise quickly, this book will be invaluable. Read it, learn from it, and you’ll find yourself working together with your collaborators to make great theatre.’ - Tom Markus, Director, Actor, Author, Playwright, Translator, Dramaturg and Educator

Robert Cohen, Claire Trevor Professor of Drama, University of California, Irvine, USA and James Calleri, President of Calleri Casting and Adjunct Professor, Syracuse University, USA

‘It is the leading book of its kind, and certainly the best available resource for young actors who wish to begin their professional careers.’ - Harold Dixon, University Distinguished Professor, University of Arizona, USA Filled with practical information on how to enter the acting profession, and now completely updated, this is the essential handbook for anyone interested in an acting career. Praised for its honesty, broad coverage and wise advice from working professionals, the authors present the vital facts that every would-be actor needs to know.

Bruce McConachie, Professor and Chair of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies, University of Pittsburgh, USA

‘Armed with a deep knowledge of the history of spectatorship, McConachie constructively engages with the recent findings of cognitive scientists to challenge fundamental assumptions about how and why we view and recall theatrical events. The result is a thoughtful, readable, and provocative work with important implications for critical theory, historiography, and production.’ - John Emigh, Professor of Theatre, Speech, and Dance and of English, Brown University, USA

Robert Cohen draws on fifty years of acting, directing and teaching experience in order to illustrate how the world’s great theatre artists combine collaboration with leadership at all levels, from a production’s conception to its final performance. The book provides the techniques, exercises and language that promote collaborative skills.

Wild and Dangerous Performances

A Pathognomy of Performance Simon Bayly, Principal Lecturer , University of Roehampton, UK

Animals, Emotions, Circus Peta Tait, Professor/Chair of Theatre and Drama, LaTrobe University, Australia

‘Wild and Dangerous Performances is a highly readable account of the ways in which circus animals, particularly big cats (lions, tigers, leopards) and elephants, respond on an emotional level to, even develop an emotional rapport with, their trainers. Tait’s new book provides a vivid perspective on developments in animal training in the nineteenth and twentieth century, while wryly noting the persistent gender stereotyping of both trainers and performing animals. This is an original, academically well grounded study, which valuably extends our knowledge of performance history.’ Professor Jim Davis, University of Warwick, UK Elephants, lions, tigers and leopards evoke fascination and awe, fear and excitement. This book analyzes trained acts in twentieth-century live circus and cinema, reveals how humans anthropomorphize animals with their emotions, and interrogates the notion that animals embody a phenomenology of emotions and feelings in culture.

‘As a practitioner of several disciplines... and as a resident of the global city wherein Hamera grounds her investigation, I recommend Dancing Communities not only as a text worth reading but, even more so, as a task worth rehearsing.’ - Shakina Nayfack, Dance Research Journal Dancers create ‘civic culture’ as performances for public consumption and vernaculars connecting individuals with little in common. Examining performance and the construction of culturally diverse communities, this book, now in paperback with a new preface, suggests that amateur and concert dance can teach us how to live and work together.

Performance, Politics and Activism

Acoustic Interculturalism

Edited by Peter Lichtenfels, University of California, USA and John Rouse, University of California, San Diego, USA

Marcus Cheng Chye Tan, Adjunct Lecturer, National University of Singapore

Considering both making political performance and making performance politically, this collection explores engagements of political resistance, public practice and performance media, on various scales of production within structures of neoliberal and liberal government and power.

Acoustic Interculturalism is a study of the soundscapes of intercultural performance through the examination of sound’s performativity. Employing an interdisciplinary approach, the book examines an akoumenological reception of sound to postulate the need for an acoustic knowing – an awareness of how sound shapes the intercultural experience.

Reassessing the Theatre of the Absurd

Shakespearean Neuroplay

Street Scenes

Reinvigorating the Study of Dramatic Texts and Performance through Cognitive Science

Late Medieval Acting and Performance

Camus, Beckett, Ionesco, Genet, and Pinter Michael Y. Bennett, Assistant Professor of English in Drama, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, USA

Clovis E. Semmes, Professor of Black Studies and Sociology and Director of Black Studies, University of Missouri-Kansas City and Professor Emeritus of African American Studies, Eastern Michigan University, USA

A collection of essays on the ways the senses ‘speak’ on Shakespeare’s stage. Drawing on historical phenomenology, science studies, gender studies and natural philosophy, the essays provide critical tools for understanding Shakespeare’s investment in staging the senses.

'This magnificent volume should be indispensable reading for students of African- American and American culture.' - Sterling Stuckey, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History, University of California at Riverside, USA

Jane Pettegree, Teaching Assistant, University of St Andrews, UK

This original and scholarly work uses three detailed case studies of plays – Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra, King Lear and Cymbeline – to cast light on the ways in which early modern writers used metaphor to explore how identities emerge from the interaction of competing regional and spiritual topographies.

Martin Welton, Lecturer in Performance, Queen Mary, University of London, UK

Why is it that in going to see plays we are also touched or moved by them, and is there more than metaphor involved in such claims? Considering these and other questions, this book examines a range of contemporary performance works in which performers and their audiences occupy a shared realm of feelings, in which the play is not always the thing.

Focusing on the first prose trilogy and Waiting for Godot, it offers a critical challenge to accepted viewpoints of Beckett’s negative status, not only within psychoanalytic literary criticism, but within Beckett criticism at large.

Urban Studies has long understood the city as a ‘text’. What would it mean now to rethink that metaphor? In answer to that question, Performance and the City, now in paperback and with a new preface by Susan Bennett, imagines civic spaces built on, and through, theatre and performance of all kinds. Featuring essays by Marla Carlson, Jen Harvie, D.J. Hopkins and Shelley Orr, Ric Knowles, Laura Levin, Michael McKinnie, Rebecca Rugg, Rebecca Schneider, Marlis Schweitzer, Kim Solga, Joanne Tompkins, and Klaus van den Berg, as well as an Afterword by Barbara Hodgdon, Performance and the City explores an interdisciplinary range of topics, including: theatre and urban policy development; architecture, trauma, and memory; urban performance history; site-specific performance and urban politics; sexuality and nationality in urban performance; and environmental performance theory.

performance and the city

‘Since its publication in 2009, Performance and the City and its expertly curated and introduced essays have quickly circulated and now appear on the reading lists of students and scholars interested in the rapidly growing fields of history and theory of urban theatre and performance. The collection's potential influence extends beyond that for traditional theatre and performance studies; each essay intervenes in larger conversations regarding globalization and urban capital production. The result is that all three editors are today identified as leading figures in the study of the city and urban performance.’ — Jean Graham-Jones, Professor in Theatre, City University of New York, USA
