How do theatre and performance transmit and dispute ideologies of neoliberalism? The essays in this collection, now available in paperback for the first time, examine the mechanisms and rhetorics artists, communities, and institutions deploy to produce theatre and performance for global audiences. Neoliberalism and Global Theatres: Performance Permutations explores how the conditions of neoliberalism affect productions of theatre and performance globally, including case studies about New Zealand, Singapore, Vietnam, China, Peru, Mexico, Indonesia, Brazil, India, Nigeria, and the United States. The 18 essays by cutting-edge scholars reveal how performance circulates, transmutes and challenges the disciplinary formations and assumptions organizing contemporary investment in market logics, and, paradoxical notions of freedom. The book brings together diverse perspectives that challenge readers to grapple with the effects of globalized capital on theater, dance, film, visual art, televisual performance and music. Neoliberalism and Global Theatres: Performance Permutations provides an excellent introduction to neoliberalism for arts and humanities students studying performance in a global context.
