This book ranges from refugee camps in Palestine to halting sites of the Irish Travellers and elsewhere in search of a new politics practiced through performance. Written through the intersection of performance and philosophy, the book refutes neoliberalism's depoliticizing and strategic uses of humanitarianism, human rights, and development.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Generous in its international reach, daring in its theoretical inclusiveness, precise in its politically nuanced analysis, Maurya Wickstrom's work is that unusual thing: a book that recognises and illuminates what performance has to do with the disaffected and the disempowered.' - Alan Read, Professor of Theatre, King's College London

'...Wickstrom offers a vibrant and innovative application of critical philosophy to sophisticated notions of theatre efficacy in the context of globalized politics... This book will be of great interest to scholars of political performance, applied theatre, and theatre philosophy, and also more broadly to those concerned with the fields of politics and international development.' - Cami Rowe, New Theatre Quarterly
