This title unravels politics from theatre in order to propose a new means to politicize performance. Performance analyses ranging from child actors, animals and objects to reflections on the innovative theatre work of Societas Raffaello Sanzio, Forced Entertainment and Goat Island combine to offer a radical critique of performance studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is a rich and rewarding book, written with feeling and a deep commitment to its many, various and often unpredictable subjects. Readers who accept its generous invitation will be seduced, provoked and encouraged to think afresh about how they understand their theatre, their politics and their intellectual engagement.' - Nicholas Ridout, School of English and Drama, Queen Mary, University of London, UK 'Read's polemic poses a vehement and noteworthy challenge, not least for the urgency with which he calls for an ethics of practice and scholarship.' - Dominic Johnson, Contemporary Theatre Review
