y separately published work icon 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.
