Palaeoperformance is a pioneering work which examines the emergence of theatricality at the birth of human societies. In the Upper Paleolithic period, over 30,000 years ago, archaeological and art historical evidence reveals the very beginnings of dramatic performance as social practice and even the institutionalization of theatricality.
