Selected proceedings of the 8th Annual Tangier (Morocco) International Conference – 2012
A collection of papers contributed by leading scholars of performance studies from around the world (eight countries - in Africa, Asia, Americas, Europe).
In the context of the transformational so-called "Arab Spring" and in honor of Erika Fischer-Lichte, Head of DFG Collaborative Research Centre "Performing Cultures" and Director of BMBF International Research Centre "Interweaving Cultures in Performance", Berlin, Germany.
Featuring Fischer-Lichte’s foundational piece, “The Emergence of New Theatrical Communities: How Cultures Interweave in Performance”
"It is altogether appropriate that at a conference in 2012 dedicated to the theme of Spectacle and Transformation that particular attention is being paid to the career and works of the German scholar Erika Fischer-Lichte, since there is no international scholar today whose administrative and academic work of the past three decades and more has been more instrumental in stimulating and shaping the transformation that the international study and practice of theatre has undergone during this period." Marvin Carlson, City University of New York
