Theatre's Heterotopias analyses performance space, using the concept of heterotopia: a location that, when apparent in performance, refers to the actual world, thus activating performance in its culture. Case studies cover site-specific and multimedia performance, and selected productions from the National Theatre of Scotland and the Globe Theatre.

Editorial Reviews

Theatre's Heterotopias analyses performance space, using the concept of heterotopia: a location that, when apparent in performance, refers to the actual world, thus activating performance in its culture. Case studies cover site-specific and multimedia performance, and selected productions from the National Theatre of Scotland and the Globe Theatre.'Theatre's Heterotopias offers the most rigorous and nuanced examination of heterotopia in performance to date. Joanne Tompkins systematically attends to the complex spatiality of theatre and is sensitive to the ambivalences and ambiguities that theatrical heterotopias entail. Where theatre and performance studies has taken heterotopia too much for granted, Theatre's Heterotopias takes it seriously.' - Michael McKinnie, Queen Mary, University of London, UK
