Everyday Places, Everyday Participation
No More Drama
“Something different is happening in contemporary theatre. Across the world the artform is changing; sometimes radically, sometimes discreetly, but quite perceptibly. When actors do not present us with characters, when the boundaries of the theatre space loosen and spill performance into the world around us, when the play is certainly no longer the thing, how do we talk about our theatre?”
No More Drama, a new book about contemporary performance published by Project Press, aims to take the chill off the terms postdramatic, documentary and avant-garde. A collection of descriptive and illuminating essays on the work of international artists such as Pan Pan Theatre Company, Rimini Protokoll, Lola Arias, Philippe Quesne, Richard Maxwell, Elevator Repair Service, Nature Theater Oklahoma, Quarantine, Krétakör and others, it is about how theatre is making meaning of the world – without making a drama about it.
No More Drama is edited by Peter Crawley and Willie White.
