about this item

This volume considers theatre's use of material from the real world in productions throughout history, such as verbatim material from everyday life, celebrity actors, physical surroundings, and physical objects. It also discusses historical changes in the concept of mimesis in the theatre and how it has connected the material onstage with the audience's previous experience with objects and processes in the real world, as well as the contemporary experimental theatre of those like Rimini Protokoll and Foundry Theatre.
