Works about this Work

y separately published work icon Transfigured Stages : Major Practitioners and Theatre Aesthetics in Australia Margaret Hamilton , Amsterdam New York (City) : Rodopi , 2011 Z1793538 2011 single work criticism 'Transfigured Stages: Major Practitioners and Theatre Aesthetics in Australia captures the excitement of a key period in the emergence of postdramatic theatre in Australia in the 1980s and 1990s. It is the first book to discuss work by The Sydney Front (1986 - 1993) and Open City (1987 - ), and engages contemporary cultural and aesthetic theory to analyse performances by these artists, as well as theatre productions by Jenny Kemp and others. These performance practitioners are considered as part of an international paradigm attesting to forms of theatre that no longer operate according to the established principles of drama. This book also highlights the complexity of Indigenous theatre through its analysis of the Mudrooroo-Müller project staged in 1996.' Source: www.rodopi.nl/ (Sighted 25/07/2011).
