Theatre and Cartographies of Power: Repositioning the Latina/o Americas (Theater in the Americas) Kindle Edition
Building on hemispheric and transnational models, this book demonstrates the capacity of theatre studies to challenge the up-down/North-South approach that dominates scholarship in the United States and presents a strong case for a repositioning of the Latina/o Americas in theatrical histories and practices.
"This compilation is a major contribution to the field of Latin/o American theatre and performance. With almost half of the contributions in translation, this edited volume succeeds in remapping our knowledge by offering theatre directors, historians, scholars, and other artists a space to share their own point of view about creation and reception.Thus this book is a gem for scholars and theatre practitioners interested in learning and teaching about the wide array of theatrical practice in the Latino/a Americas."--Paola Hernandez, Theatre Topics
"This book brings into conversation many of the world's most important Latin American theatre scholars and practitioners. Noriega and Santana present fresh themes and innovative, cutting-edge theories and artistic practices, expanding conceptions of Latin American and Latinx theatre."--Gail A. Bulman, author of Staging Words, Performing Worlds
"By including the work of cutting-edge artists alongside theatre theorists and historians, the editors also unmask the hierarchy that has often worked against the recognition that Latina/o American artists are important critical thinkers about power, representation, and violence in the Americas. I can't wait to introduce this volume to my students and colleagues."--Patricia Ybarra, author of Performing Conquest--This text refers to the paperback edition.
