Naming Theatre. Demonstrative Diagnosis in Performance
Verlag: Palgrave Macmillan Ltd.
Autor(en): James Frieze
Umfang / Preis: 224 pages / £ 50.00
Closely reading a range of performance work from the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, Naming Theatre is a ground-breaking study of theatre's growing obsession with technologies and effects of naming. How do theatre-makers such as Ping Chong, Anne Bogart, Suzan-Lori Parks, Forced Entertainment, Lightwork, Ridiculusmus, Theodora Skipitares, Paula Vogel, and Riot Group intervene in naming practices across domains such as medicine, political activism, philosophy, horror films, television and print journalism, anthropology, advertising and brand development, semiotics, military training, and genetics?
Using original archival research, Racial Geometries examines the way images of blackness and Asianness were intertwined in US on- and off-stage performances between the two World Wars. In thinking of these performances as geometries, as a racialized way to measure the earth, we can more attend more carefully to the ways racial formation occurs not through a simple spectrum, but through multiform structures that link national and racial groups in unusual ways.
