Write The First Customer Review

The idea of performance as distinct artistic practice emerges in the context of modernity. This guide to modernism and performance introduces key developments and debates of the period (the rise of the director, new theories of acting, new modes of production, complex relationships to classical and oriental drama); debates that helped to create new languages of performance. It suggests that our understanding of the workings of performance in the period might help to reconfigure our general understanding of modernism.
