Performance Culture And Identity by Jean Haskell
|Title||Performance Culture and Identity|
|Publisher||Praeger Pub Text|
|Language||English, Spanish, and French|
These nine essays explore how performance reveals, shapes, and sometimes transforms personal and cultural identity. Particular chapters discuss ritual performances in sacred and secular spaces, the notion of performance and place in several disparate landscapes, and women as storytellers. Significant issues in performance studies are addressed, such as the politics of culture, cultural hegemony, the influence of a sense of place on cultural identity, and the moral dimension of performance.
