9780230218307: Theatre and Globalization


What is globalization? What role is there for the theatre in a globalizing world?
 
This original and provocative book explores the contribution that theatre has made to our slowly evolving consciousness of our world as a whole. Drawing on sources from Aeschylus to The Lion King, Chekhov to Complicite, tragedy to advertising, the book argues for theatre's importance as a site of resistance to the ruthless spread of the global market.

Foreword by Mark Ravenhill

DAN REBELLATO is Professor of Contemporary Theatre at Royal Holloway University of London, UK. He has published widely on contemporary theatre, including his book 1956 and All That (1999).

Review:

I heartily recommend this book. Its arguments are clear, committed and engaging. And there are some very good jokes. Youre in for a treat. Mark Ravenhill

'A lively read that makes clear why thinking about theatre and globalization matters and how these two terms are imbricated with/in each other.' Janelle Reinelt, Professor of Theatre and Performance, University of Warwick
