Autobiography and Performance by Deirdre Heddon

Book Description

"Autobiography and Performance" offers a comprehensive overview of the use of autobiography in performance. Encompassing work from the solo monologue to site-specific practice, this book seeks to uncover the political potentials and limits that accompany the use of the personal in performance. Examining the work of key international practitioners, including Tim Miller, Lisa Kron, Bobby Baker and Curious, Heddon argues that autobiographical performances, which turn to the past as a means to rewrite the future, continue to act as possible sites of resistance and intervention.
