Critical Essays on European Theatre Performance Practice: 4-Volume Set
- This format is currently out of stock.
This series of four volumes brings together the best and most significant scholarship published on European performance practice over the last half century. The featured articles and book chapters provide a significant introduction to many of the major past and current developments in the field and emphasise acting, performance spaces, staging and audiences, from the Middle Ages to the present day. The volume editors have selected articles that most usefully represent performance practice within their own specialist period, and have complemented their strong focus on British theatre by including European material and references. This representative cross-section of articles, book chapters and records serves as a useful reference point for those wishing to investigate or teach the many and varied facets of performance practice in Europe from medieval times up until the present day.
