Full Description
Contesting Performance is a landmark collection of essays by international scholars that addresses the global development of performance research in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Aimed at students and researchers around the world, the collection functions as a critical reader on diverse, localised approaches to studying performance, while also revealing networks of practical and theoretical concerns that contest dominant paradigms of performance studies.
