Justitia (Book)

Multidisciplinary Readings of the Work of the Jasmin Vardimon Company

Edited by Paul Johnson and Sylwia Dobkowska Series edited by Patrick Duggan

This book offers a series of compelling responses to the Jasmin Vardimon Company's production of Justitia, a multilayered, multimedia dance theatre piece. Through an innovative, visually annotated text, which includes the original script by Rebecca Lenkiewicz, the book attempts to record the experience of the performance. Also included are nine critical responses from scholars and theatrical practitioners who consider the performance through lenses relating to time, collaboration, writing, confession and the law.
