Books Info:

Theatre of the Real free pdf At an unparalleled time of the construction of reality across the fields of the sciences and humanities on a variety of platforms, theatre and performance participates in the current obsession with the problems and possibilities of the epistemologies of the real by using and revising testimony and the archive to create and recreate personal, national, historical, and virtual realities. Carol Martin examines the special relationship of theatre and performance to the real in order to theorize how we come to know, experience, and conceptualize our personal, social and political lives. Theatre of the Real, now available in paperback, includes a discussion of a wide range of work including Is.Man by Adelheid Roosen, Rumstick Road by Spalding Gray, Via Dolorosa by David Hare, Kamp by Hotel Modern, My Name is Rachel Corrie edited by Alan Rickman and Katherine Viner, House/Divided by The Builders Association, and The Pixilated Revolution by Rabih Mroue.
