These essays explore aspects of historical performance in ancient Greece, linking its significance to wider reflections on cultural theory from around the world and on performance in the contemporary postmodern era. Topics include the origin of ancient tragic acting; festival performance in ancient Athens; the reflection of performance in the tragic scripts; the significance of the chorus; technology and the ancient theater; comparative thinking on Greek, Indian, and Japanese theory; the rhetoric of performance theory and postmodernism; modernism and theater; the importance of adaptation to theater; and studies of the theater and diaspora in Britain.
