Not Just a Mirror: Looking for the Political Theatre of Today

Editor: Florian Malzacher | Reference: P2797 | ISBN: 978-3895813788 | Type: Publication

The publication is comprised of eight essays, two interviews, and 15 case studies of political theatre makers, and investigates the performing arts as a political laboratory of the present. It explores how theatre, dance, and performance reveal their essential agnosticism, provoking the potential to actively change society rather than merely serving as a cover-up for the dysfunctions, fractures, and wounds of society.
