To All Appearances: Ideology and Performance

Notes

 The author's concerns – which include the social meaning of illusion and the cultural manifestation of power – take the reader from Eleanora Duse to Laurie Anderson; from the puppet theatre of Kleist to Kantor's theatre of the dead; and from the Kutiyattam temple dancers in Kerala to Womanhouse in Los Angeles.
