Since its original publication in 1996, Marvin Carlson's Performance: A Critical Introduction has remained the definitive guide to understanding performance as a theatrical activity. It is an unparalleled exploration of the myriad ways in which performance has been interpreted, its importance to disciplines from anthropology to linguistics, and how it underpins essential concepts of human society.

In this comprehensively revised and updated third edition, Carlson tackles the pressing themes and theories of our age, with expanded coverage of :

the growth and importance of racial and ethnic performance;

the emergence of performance concerned with age and disability;

the popularity and significance of participatory and immersive theatre;

the crucial relevance of identity politics and cultural performance in the twenty-first century.

Also including a fully updated bibliography and glossary, this classic text is an invaluable touchstone for any student of performance studies, theatre history, and the performing and visual arts.
