The documentation of practice is one of the principle concerns of performance studies. Focusing on contemporary performance practice and with emphasis on the transformative impact of video, photography and writing, this book explores the ideological, practical, and representational implications of knowing performance through its documentations.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Matthew Reason's book is highly pertinent to current debates around the documentation of performance. It represents, to my knowledge, the first sustained attempt to capture and rationalise what is at stake in the practice. Drawing on the work of artists and companies as diverse as Forced Entertainment, DV8, Annie Sprinkle and the Traverse Theatre Company, he analyzes with authority and clarity a startling range of art and documentary forms, incorporating video, still photography, dance, new performance, live art, writing and drama. With its immediate relevance to the fast-evolving phenomenon of practice as research, this is a book that will meet with a broad degree of interest from students, scholar and practitioners alike.' - Dr Nicolas Whybrow, Senior Lecturer in Theatre and Performance Studies, University of Warwick, UK
