Embodying Transformation

Transcultural Performance

Edited by: Maryrose Casey

The essays in this collection explore transcultural events to reveal deeper understandings of the dynamic nature, power, and affect of performance as it is created and witnessed across national and cultural boundaries. Focusing on historical and contemporary public events in multiple contexts, the book's contributors offer readings of transcultural exchanges between European, Asian, African, and Middle Eastern countries, as well as colonizers and colonists, to colonized peoples and back again. In the process, the book explores questions around issues of aesthetics, cultural anxieties, cultural control, and the effect of intentions on practice. *** Librarians: ebook available on ProQuest and EBSCO (Series: Performance Studies) [Subject: Performance Art, Cultural Studies]
