This radical new textbook introduces an innovative approach to the study of performance. Emphasizing the need to re-engage with the materiality of theatre-making processes and to articulate the knowledge of performance located within the practice of theatre, Thinking Through Theatre and Performance examines the ways in which performance - and performance studies - is itself practised through enquiry-driven logics of creative invention and critical investigation. The volume considers four areas of investigation and practice: *Seeing and Perceiving: Theatre, Space and Audience *Making and Staging: Figure, Scene and Image *Threads and Traces: Performance, Time and Memory *Effects and Affects: Performance, Politics and Ethics Rather than making claims for performance as a pre-determined way of thinking `about' the world, the book examines how in each of these areas performance operates as an investigative enquiry `into' it. Accordingly, it outlines and explores the questions performance is uniquely capable of asking and interrogates the ways in which it asks them. Across the four parts and through the carefully structured investigations by leading international scholars, it offers a comprehensive and compelling overview of contemporary performance as a practice of critical and creative thinking.
