Notes

  • Somewhere in the desert, between a rocket range and an atomic test site, we meet four women. Iris is there still, pumping petrol at the road house. Stella is growing up in the 1970s, watching rockets and dreaming about other worlds. In the '60s Barb finds herself suffering agrophobia on a two thousand square mile sheep station; and in the 1830s Louisa arrives at the settlement by ship and triggers a chain of events that reverberate to this day.
  • Unpublished.

y Mapping Cultural Identity in Contemporary Australian Performance Helena Grehan , Brussels New York (City) Berne : Peter Lang , 2001 Z932026 2001 single work criticism

Focuses on a critical reading of four key Australian performance pieces to demonstrate ways in which cultural identity can be represented and interpreted in performance. Grehan takes as her point of departure questions of place, belonging and cultural identity to formulate an analytical framework ('mapping') for contemporary performance. Drawing on theoretical ideas of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Rosi Braidotti and Edward Casey, she develops her own theory of mapping as an analytical tool which can facilitate the opening of multiple layers of meaning within contemporary performance.
