'We Want Hope' : The Power of Indigenous Arts in Australia Today, Wesley Enoch , 2001 single work essay autobiography (p. 4-15)
Whose Turn to Shout? The Crisis in Australian Musical Theatre, Peter Fitzpatrick , 2001 single work criticism
Examines the contemporary situation and development of the musical theatre genre in Australia, arguing that it is in crisis for the want of decent funding and serious attention, despite the recent successes of the two shows The Boy from Oz and Shout!.
(p. 16-28)
Post-feminist Physical Theatre : The Abject and the Split Subject in My Vicious Angel by Christine Evans, Adele Chynoweth , 2001 single work criticism
Examines the successful production of the play which 'reveals the mode of feminist politics ... acceptable for high-profile theatre companies' (44). Although the play 'provides a generally well-received alternative to the phallocentric formula of the singular male protagonist within the conventional linear narrative', the author argues that perhaps Evans 'does not go far enough in critiquing patriarchal constructions' (55).
(p. 44-57)
Sugar, Land and Belonging : Summer of the Seventeenth Doll and No Sugar, Russell McDougall , 2001 single work criticism
In examining two of the most significant plays in white Australian and indigenous Australian theatre history, the author argues that 'The Doll's allegorising of the nation relies upon racialised amnesia nd nostalgia that revolves around the ideal of whiteness and the possession of an imaginary homeland', whereas in Davis's play 'sugar focuses a post-colonial strategy of translation' (58).
