9781137408525: Shakespeare and Gender in Practice (Shakespeare in Practice)

Cross-gender performance was an integral part of Shakespearean theatre: from boys portraying his female characters, to those characters disguising themselves as men within the story.

This book examines contemporary trends in staging cross-gender performances of Shakespeare in the UK and USA. Terri Power surveys the field of gender in performance through an intersectional feminist and queer theoretical lens. In depth discussions of key productions reveal processes adapted by companies for their performances. The book also looks at how contemporary performance responds to new cultural politics of gender and creates a critical language for understanding that within Shakespeare.

This book features:

- First-hand interviews with professional artists
- Case studies of individual performances
- A practical workshop section with innovative exercises
