9780472069316: Not the Other Avant-Garde: The Transnational Foundations of Avant-Garde Performance (Theater: Theory/Text/Performance)

The essays in this collection offer a radical reappraisal of the avant-garde by placing it within a much broader global context. The book questions the very assumptions that underlie the generally accepted chronology and theory of the avant-garde, and offer a bold new performance-based theory that moves beyond Eurocentric presup-positions. In ten essays especially commissioned for this volume, leading scholars and critics including Marvin Carlson, Supito Chatterjee, John Conteh-Morgan, Harry J. Elam, Jr., Joachim Fiebach, David G. Goodman, Jean Graham-Jones, Hanna Higgins, and Adam Versenyi discuss avant-garde performances in Africa, the Middle East, Mexico, Argentina, India, and Japan.

Review:

"Joins the growing field of critical and transnational theories on the arts... its grounding in live performance and its foregrounding of the performative human body presents a new theoretical paradigm that is pathbreaking." - Haiping Yan, University of California, Los Angeles"
