Certain Fragments by Tim Etchells
Book DescriptionWhat is the relationship between performance and play? Between performance and technology? Between performance and death? Certain Fragments is an extraordinary exploration of what lies at the heart of contemporary theatre. Written by the artistic director of Forced Entertainment, acknowledged to be Britains most brilliant experimental theatre company (Guardian), Certain Fragments investigates the processes of devising performance, the role of writing in an interdisciplinary theatre, and the influence of the city on contemporary art practice. Tim Etchells unique and provocative voice shifts from intimate anecdote to critical analysis and back again. And as in his theatre-making so in his book: with Certain Fragments Etchells disrupts traditional notions of creative, academic, and intellectual work. The book is an exciting and radical fusion of story-telling and criticism. It also makes available, for the first time, four seminal Forced Entertainment texts by Etchells.

Broken World, Paperback (September 2009)
Writing an on-line walk-through to a computer game of some complexity can take up a lot of time. As our narrator grapples with his player's guide, real life starts to intrude in troublesome ways. The day job, the live-in girlfriend and his best friend are all causing him headaches; but nothing can distract him from the task at hand.
Theatre and the City, Paperback (June 2009)» View all books by Tim Etchells
How do power dynamics, ideologies and identity play out in relations between theatre and the city? Evaluating material conditions such as architecture and performative practices such as urban activism, Harvie argues both contribute to understanding the complex economies and ecologies of theatre and performance in an increasingly urbanized world.
