about

A cinema without cameras, without actors, without screen frames and without narratives almost seems like an antithetical impossibility of what is usually expected from a cinematic spectacle. This book defines an emergent field of post-cinematic theatre and performance, challenging our assumptions and expectations about theatre and film.
Piotr Woycicki is a Lecturer in Theatre and Performance Studies at Aberystwyth University, UK. His previous publications include articles in the Journal of Beckett Studies and the Journal of Performance Research.

Editorial Reviews

A cinema without cameras, without actors, without screen frames and without narratives almost seems like an antithetical impossibility of what is usually expected from a cinematic spectacle. This book defines an emergent field of post-cinematic theatre and performance, challenging our assumptions and expectations about theatre and film.'This book offers an original and exciting contribution to existing scholarship on contemporary intermedial performance. It skilfully defines 'post cinematic theatre' and traces its distinctive features in terms of form, content and address, using some well chosen examples. Piotr Woycicki deals with complex ideas in an accessible way and the eclectic range of theoretical material in this book will help give students and academics alike an excellent critical vocabulary with which to engage with this emerging body of practice.' - Victoria Lowe, University of Manchester, UK
