Works about this Work

Mis-Recognised Knowledges : National Identity and the Unreliable Narrator in Jack Hibberd's A Stretch of the Imagination and Josephine Wilson's The Geography of Haunted Places Glen McGillivray , 2008 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australasian Drama Studies , April no. 52 2008; (p. 69-84)
'In this article I analyse how both works [A Stretch of the Imagination and The Geography of Haunted Places], despite their different historical contexts, enact a critique of Australian identity against a background of significant political change within the country. Although seemingly quite different, these works adopt similar dramaturgical strategies and I argue that their significance lies in their genealogical connection.' (69)
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.
