Staging Creolization: Women's Theatre and Performance frm the French Caribbean - New World Studies Modern Language Initiative (Paperback)Emily Sahakian (author)
- We can order this
Sahakian here theorizes creolization as a performance-based process, dramatized by French Caribbean women's plays and enacted through their international production and reception histories. The author contends that the syncretism of the plays is not a static, fixed creole aesthetics but rather a dynamic process of creolization in motion, informed by history and based in the African-derived principle that performance is a space of creativity and transformation that connects past, present, and future.
