Description - Post-Colonial Drama by Helen Gilbert

This study addresses the ways in which performance has been instrumental in resisting the continuing effects of imperialism. It brings to bear the latest theoretical approaches from post-colonial and performance studies to a range of plays from Australia, Africa, Canada, New Zealand and the Caribbean. Some of the major topics discussed include: the interactions of post-colonial and performance theories, the post-colonial re-stagings of language and history, the specific enactments of ritual and carnival, and the theatrical citations of the post-colonial body. The text combines an intersection of theoretical approaches with close attention to a wide range of performance texts.
