Performance and Communities
The Performance and Communities Book Series celebrates, challenges and researches performance in the real world. We are committed to publishing diverse texts that explore various modes of performance using voice, body, space, movement, language, sound, texture, shape in work in a variety of spaces and places (from traditional theatres to site specific playgrounds). We look to publish work that responds to social, cultural, academic and physical communities. The series will consider how contemporary performance can engage, build and learn from previous, existing, evolving and new communities of people – practitioners, academics, students, audiences.
