The Radical in Performance by Baz Kershaw
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Radical in Performance interrogates 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 culture which, says Kershaw, is largely 'past its sell-by-date' and the blossoming of postmodern performance, much of which has a genuinely radical edge. In staying determinedly poised 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. He asks, what next, once political theatre is all but dead, smothered by the promiscuity of the political in postmodern culture? 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 doing cultural politics.
