Distributed for Intellect Ltd
• What is the role of language in theatre today?
• Whose language is English; what other languages do women making theatre use?
• What does it mean to write about, photograph and video live performance?
• What is the future for women's theatre in an international context increasingly united by new technologies but divided by new issues of cultural diversity?
Goodman and de Gay analysis covers issues that are central to current courses in Theatre and Performance and Women's Studies. They assess the forms which women as theatre-makers have chosen to explore in the age of new technology, and look at some of the different definitions of 'theory' offered by theatre-makers and critics including Caryl Churchill, Hélène Cixous, Luce Irigiray and Julia Kristeva.
