9781138789029: Performance, Ethnography, and Communication: Improvisation and Enactments of Experience

Performance, Ethnography, and Communication explores the relationships between these three key terms, addressing the impact of ethnography and communication on the cutting edge of performance studies. Ranging from digital performance, improvisation and the body, to fieldwork and collaboration, this volume is divided into two main sections:

  • Embodied Technique and Practice, which addresses improvisation, devised theatre-making and body work to consider what makes bodies move, sound, behave, look, or mean differently, and the effects of these differences on performance.
  • Oral History and Personal Narrative Performance, which is concerned with the ways personal stories and histories might be transformed into public events, looking at questions of perspective, ownership, and reception.

Including specific historical and theoretical case studies, exercises and activities, and practical applications for improvisation, ethnography and digital performance, Performance, Ethnography, and Communication represents an invaluable resource for today’s student of Performance Studies, Communication Studies or Cultural Studies.
