Foucault'S Theatres, Paperback / softback Book

Foucault'S Theatres Paperback / softback

Edited by Tony Fisher, Kelina Gotman

Part of the Theatre: Theory - Practice - Performance series

Paperback / softback


The volume contributes to a new articulation of theatre and performance studies via Foucault's critical thought.

With cutting edge studies by established and emerging writers in areas such as dramaturgy, film, music, cultural history and journalism, the volume aims to be accessible for both experienced researchers and advanced students encountering Foucault's work for the first time. The introduction sets out a thorough and informative assessment of Foucault's relevance to theatre and performance studies and to our present cultural moment - it rereads his profound engagement with questions of truth, power and politics, in light of previously unknown writings and lectures set in relation to current political and cultural concerns. Unique to this volume is the discovery of a 'theatrical' Foucault - the profound affinity of his thinking with questions of performativity.

This discovery makes accessible the 'performance turn' to readers of Foucault, while opening up ways of reading Foucault's oeuvre 'theatrically'. -- .
