Overview

This interdisciplinary collection of fifteen new essays, by scholars of theatre, Irish studies, music, design and politics, explores aspects of the performance of violence in contemporary Ireland. Investigating such wide-ranging issues as the diegetic and mimetic representation of violence on stage, the ethical questions involved in performing violence, audience reception, and the role of place and space, the essays also consider public performances such as processions, parades, and commemorations. With chapters on the work of playwrights Martin McDonagh, Martin Lynch, Conor McPherson and Gary Mitchell, on Republican commemorations and the 90th anniversary ceremonies for the Battle of the Somme and the Easter Rising, this book aims to contribute to the ongoing international debate on the performance of violence in contemporary societies.
