    Special Price: $20.00

    Volume 6 in the series Critical Perspectives in Canadian Theatre in English
    "The composite that emerges from the collage of the eighteen articles herein is, as I have indicated, off-centre and complex. It is also celebratory of off-centredness and complexity—of the edginess of the British Columbia play/playwright/ theatre company. These articles acknowledge political, social, and performative borders and examine British Columbia theatre from perspectives which pay tribute to the flouting of arbitrarily imposed restrictions." —from the introduction Learn More

    “Contemporary theatre in Alberta performs the cultural diversity of the province, playing against stereotypes of drought-ridden farmers, uncultured cowboys, and oil magnates. The critical reception of Alberta theatre reflects this wide range, as is evident in this collection—from detailed historical perspectives to complex theoretical analyses. However, it has only just begun to survey the vibrant, growing performance scene in the province.” —from the introduction Learn More

    Volume 13 in the series Critical Perspectives on Canadian Theatre in English
    “Released from the ordinate systems that charted theatre history as a process of development in an evolving joint narrative of national culture and national repertoire, researchers have effectively inverted the premise that established their discipline. Instead of investigating how the nation has produced theatre, they ask instead how theatre produces the nation. The result has been a shift from macroscopic narratives to situated mappings of the cultural meanings of theatre.” —from the introduction Learn More

    Gathers together for the first time a set of provocative critical essays that explore the development of Toronto as an important national and global site of cultural production. By highlighting a variety of strategies for reading theatre in Toronto, these essays ask timely questions about what it means to historicize performance in an urban context and how performance can serve as a useful lens for coming to terms with contemporary urban processes. They remind us that the specific cultural economies and ecologies of Toronto have not only been instrumental in shaping the identity of theatre in the city, but also that theatre and theatricality shape the way that Toronto’s civic identity is performed.

    Volume 20 in series Critical Perspectives on Canadian Theatre in English
    Simultaneously both a very old device and also a relative newcomer, solo performance shifts the terms of the audience’s engagement with the fictional character. With only one performer on the stage, we are invited to pose the question, “Who is this person talking to?” And so, in that bid to address the audience directly, a different kind of relationship is formed between the audience and the character, between actual and fictional worlds. The essays in this collection examine the phenomenon of the solo play or monodrama from a range of perspectives to create a kind of collective portrait of the actor alone on stage. Learn More
