"New Russian Drama" began its rise at the end of the twentieth century, following a decline in dramatic writing in Russia that stemmed back to the 1980s. Authors Beumers and Lipovetsky examine the representation of violence in these new dramatic works penned by young Russian playwrights. "Performing Violence" is the first English-language study of the consequent boom in drama and why this new breed of authors were writing fierce plays, the focus is on political and social representations of violence, its performances and justifications. "Performing Violence" seeks a vantage point for the analysis of brutality in post-Soviet culture.
