Theatre in Passing : Searching for New Amsterdam 2 Paperback / softback
This title covers world theatres and spaces of performance.
It features original photography; broad appeal: can be marketed as a guide to theatres; scholarly appeal: critical inquiry into overlooked area deserving attention.
This book discusses spaces of performance from formal opera houses to parks and graffiti around the world and is a companion to "Theatre in Passing: A Moscow Photo-Diary".
Drawing once again on Michel de Certeau's notion of a 'second poetic geography,' this new volume examines prominent theatrical destinations - New York, London and Paris - along with others that are often overlooked, including Canada, Mexico and Turkey.
In addition to indoor theatres, the book covers a variety of outdoor theatrical spaces, as well as street theatre.
Like its predecessor, "Theatre in Passing 2" is richly illustrated with photographs by the author and provides fascinating insights into the intersection of performing arts, visual culture and photography.
