The Radical in Performance : Between Brecht and Baudrillard, Paperback / softback Book

The Radical in Performance : Between Brecht and Baudrillard Paperback / softback


The Radical in Performance investigates the crisis in contemporary theatre, and celebrates the subversive in performance.

It is the first full-length study to explore the link between a western theatre which, says Kershaw, is largely outdated and the blossoming of postmodern performance, much of which has a genuinely radical edge.

In staying focused on the period between Brecht and Baudrillard, modernity and postmodernism, Baz Kershaw identifies crucial resources for the revitalisation of the radical across a wide spectrum of cultural practices. This is a timely, necessary and rigorous book. It will be a compelling read for anyone searching for a critical catalyst for new ways of viewing and practising cultural politics.
