About this item

Sound provides the first overview of relevant critical theory for students and researchers in theatre and performance studies. Exploring areas such as music, speech and soundscape, this volume will open up the study of theatrical production and live performance to engage more effectively its aural dimensions. By way of developed case studies, including Shakespeare's The Tempest and Pina Bausch's dance-theatre piece 1980, readers will access new methodologies and approaches for their own exploration of 'sound' as a performance component. In an engagement with the burgeoning interdisciplinary field of sound studies, this book will alert theatre and performance studies scholars and students to new work important to our fields.

Part of the Theory for Theatre Studies series which introduces core theoretical concepts that underpin the discipline, Sound provides a balance of essential background information and original thinking, and is grounded in case studies to illuminate and equip readers. Volumes follow a consistent three-part structure: an overview of how the term has been understood within the discipline; current trends illustrated by substantive case studies; and emergent trends and interdisciplinary connections. Volumes are supported by further online resources including illustrative material, questions and exercises.
