Performing Autobiography in U.S. Latina Theater: Emotions That Matterby Leah Garland
Pub. Date: 02/28/2009
Publisher: Peter Lang Publishing Inc.
Contemporary Latina/o Performing Arts of Moraga, Tropicana, Fusco, and Bustamante demonstrates the crucial significance of looking at theatrical performance for rethinking critical inquiry. Leah Garland closely analyzes the theoretical tools with which prominent theater artists – Cherríe Moraga, Carmelita Tropicana, Coco Fusco, and Não Bustamante – challenge neocolonial parameters for self-examination. Garland shows how the self-affirmative maneuvers that these artists deploy reconceptualize the subject in literary theory.
