Theatre and Nation Paperback / softback

Part of the Theatre And series

Paperback / softback


How has theatre engaged with the nation-state and helped to formulate national identities?

What impact have migration and globalisation had on the relationship between theatre and nation?Theatre& Nation explores how theatre institutions, playwrights, theatre-makers and performance artists engage with the nation, nationalism and national identity in their work.

The book argues that theatrical representations of the nation are constantly in flux and that the way theatre engages with the nation changes according to different geographical, political, economic, social and cultural circumstances. Foreword by Nicholas Hytner.
