Since its first performances in the 1980s, Jan Lauwers’ theater work with Needcompany has challenged the contemporary performing arts and provoked some of the best pieces of theater criticism. It gathers texts by a variety of eminent writers working in different disciplines (theater and performance studies, comparative literature, philosophy, cultural sociology) who take up the artistic, aesthetic and philosophical questions raised by Needcompany’s post-dramatic theater. With contributions by such authorities as Hans-Thies Lehmann, Marvin Carlson, Martin Harries, Jürgen Pieters, Rudi Laermans, George Banu and many others, this attractively illustrated collection should prove invaluable to everyone interested in Needcompany, its artistic context and the performing arts in general.
