Violence Performed PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Violence Performed free pdf A collection of scholarly essays, in paperback for the first time, Violence Performed is a timely intervention that explores the constitutive relationship between violence and performance in a variety of geopolitical spaces. Using the optic of performance studies, the authors offer fresh theoretical perspectives on questions of local/global violence to examine political violence across various social and artistic sites while also addressing more global concerns about how violence is performed in the modern world. The essays look at media as diverse as street theatre and performance art to photography and cinema, in locations as diverse as Korea and South Africa to India and Israel. Collectively, the essays expand the methodological, discursive, and geographical frameworks of Performance Studies.
