A Short History of Western Performance Space / Edition 1by David Wiles
Pub. Date: 11/28/2007
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
David Wiles considers theatrical activity "happening" in churches, streets, pubs and galleries, as well as in buildings explicitly designed to be "theaters", in this historical account. Surveying performance space usage within the traditions of Western Europe, Wiles traces a diverse set of continuities, from Greece and Rome to the present, including many areas not included in standard accounts of theater history.
