Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In an era of porous borders—both real and artistic—we urgently look to artists who can reach beyond traditional boundaries. This volume is a welcome and inspiring collection of artists' perspectives on the relationship of performance to a new set of global and aesthetic realities. As these artists discuss their lives, work, ideas and aspirations, readers will cross countless borders with them."—Thomas Sellar, Yale University
"In a world where globalisation is seen as the great threat to native cultures, identity and art forms, and where, paradoxically, interdisciplinary, cross-fertilisation and formal experimentation are the buzz words of both the artist and academic, playwright/scholar Caridad Svich has brought together in this timely volume a broad range of international theatrical practitioners to reflect on their working processes and how the breaking of boundaries, both national and formal has affected their methodologies and their art."—Colin Teevan, playwright/translator
"This is a book with a personality as vivid and quirky as the artists that appear beneath its covers, and while certain themes and perspectives float between the conversations, there is a fierce individuality to each of the pieces. The lasting impression is of the contemporary artist as a tightrope walker on the borders of culture, politics, aesthetics and technology. What keeps them up there is the elusive concept of creativity, and perhaps that is the book's greatest strength: it looks beyond theory and practice to the productive imagination."—Paul Heritage, Queen Mary, University of London

    Essential reading!

    A fascinating collection of conversations on theatre, media, performance, and culture. Ground-breaking artists discuss process in unique and frank ways that make for provocative and instructive reading for anyone interested in the arts. The book is well-formatted, and reads with ease. Each interview reflects the intrinsic nature of the artist interviewed, and juxtaposes themes and ideas evident in other interviews in the volume creating important connective tissue throughout. Key figures such as Tim Etchells, Guillermo Gomez-Pena, Erik Ehn, Joanna Laurens, Marianne Weems and Migdalia Cruz are among the extremely impressive list of artists profiled. Essential reading for students and practitioners of theatre and performance, and general-interest arts-lovers as well.
