What People are Saying About This
'This book offers an original and exciting contribution to existing scholarship on contemporary intermedial performance. It skilfully defines 'post cinematic theatre' and traces its distinctive features in terms of form, content and address, using some well chosen examples. Piotr Woycicki deals with complex ideas in an accessible way and the eclectic range of theoretical material in this book will help give students and academics alike an excellent critical vocabulary with which to engage with this emerging body of practice.' - Victoria Lowe, University of Manchester, UK
