Presents a broad range of critical and theoretical methods, and applies them to contemporary and historical performance genres. Revised and Enlarged Edition
Traces the many ways in which museums have approached performance works from the 1960s onwards, considering the unique challenges of documenting live events.
Despite the problematic politics of cultural exchange in the theatre, interculturalism is not a one-sided process. Using the metaphor of the hourglass to discuss the transfer between source and target culture, Pavis asks what happens when the hourglass is turned upside down, when the `foreign’ culture speaks for itself.
